LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas is inviting the public to visit its Native Medicinal Plant Research Garden.

The annual summer tour is planned for Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. The garden is part of a program that ties together botany and medicinal chemistry.

Kelly Kindscher, the head of the program's botany side, will lead the tour. Kindscher is a senior scientist at the Kansas Biological Survey and a professor of environmental studies.

The garden is located about 10 minutes from downtown Lawrence at 1865 E. 1600 Road, near the Lawrence airport in Douglas County.

Students in fields such as environmental studies, engineering, journalism and geology all have taken part in projects at the garden.
