While we are excited about the inaugural SAMPOSIUM, our hope is that will become a yearly event that will bring inspirational and engaging speakers to Columbus.  This can be done only with the support of our community.  The Columbus Botanical Garden has set up a dedicated fund to ensure the continuation of Mr. Pate’s passion for teaching.  All gifts and contributions to this fund will be used only towards growing SAMPOSIUM into a self-sustaining celebration of nature and education for people of all ages in Columbus and beyond.

If Sam Pate impacted your life please consider contributing to the SAMposium Fund.
