The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden Board of Directors voted this past week to approve San Antonio Botanical Garden CEO Sabina Carr as the organization’s incoming president and CEO. Carr will begin her role as Dallas Arboretum president and CEO at the end of November. As president and CEO, Carr will oversee strategic vision and direct all operations of the 66-acre garden. Each year, the Dallas Arboretum welcomes more than one million visitors from across the country and approximately 70 countries worldwide. Carr is a nationally recognized leader in public gardens. In her four years as CEO of the San Antonio Botanical Garden, she has more than doubled annual visits and organization membership by adding unique programming and championing community access. She also finalized a successful $40 million capital campaign that transformed the organization with stunning new gardens, facilities and amenities. Before joining the San Antonio Botanical Garden, she served as vice president of marketing for the Atlanta Botanical Garden for more than 15 years. After relocating from San Antonio, she will reside in Dallas and looks forward to spending time with family and friends in the garden. For more information, visit — Juliette Coulter
