January 2020 Meeting

A Tale of Two Floras:

Monday, January 20, 2020 • 7 p.m.
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco

with Evan Meyer

Evan Meyer is the Assistant Director of the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden, a diverse urban oasis in West Los Angeles. Prior to that he managed the Seed Conservation Program at Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden.

California is globally renowned for its fantastic displays of annuals, sweeping landscapes of drought adapted shrubs and charismatic trees. The flora of western South Africa is equally famous, containing an incredible diversity of flowering shrubs, succulents, and bulbs. Join Evan as he shares stories of his travels throughout California and a recent expedition to the Western Cape of South Africa. He will compare these two remarkable parts of the world and describe how plants make the journey from wild landscapes to gardens.
