E.J. Carr Plant Center, view of exhibits

The Ellwood J. Carr Botanical Collection came to Pine Mountain in 1984 [?]. The very large collection was housed with the instructional materials  for the Environmental Education Program located in the former Girl’s Industrial Building, now commonly called the “Plant Center.”

Ellwood Jerome Carr, who preferred to be called “Bud” throughout his life, was 95 years old when he died on March 26, 2005, in Brodhead, Kentucky. His long life as a naturalist was regularly punctuated with accomplishment and his contributions to southeastern Kentucky are well-known to those interested in the flora and fauna of this region.
