PGG Chairman Tony Arnold presents Stephen Butler with a PGG loyal service award at Bloom 2019.

Stephen has worked at Dublin Zoo for over 30 years and was instrumental in developing the way in which plants are used for habitat management for the animals at the zoo. By ensuring a better environment for the animals, and at the same time creating a very different visitor experience, his nomination for this award was fully justified.

Stephen retired last year but remains an active PGG member in Ireland.

Our thanks go to The Tree Council of Ireland for allowing us to use their stand at Bloom 2019 in Phoenix Park, Dublin and to Brian O’Donnell (right) for making it all possible.  

Thanks to Joseph Blair for the photograph.
