"Wildflowers of the Trinity Alps" - March 14
Ken DeCamp, author of Wildflowers of the Trinity Alps, has been drawing
and photographing wildflowers for over 40 years.  It is from this collection
of images that this book became a reality.  Though he has traveled widely,
he has always considered the mountains of northern California his home and has, for 60 years, explored their most hard-to-reach places.  Ken will share
tales from the trails, and images of some of his favorite flowers.
Books will be available for purchase.  See events below for time & location.

All in the Family - Ericaceae  with Bruce Palmer

From a world view to our local species, biologist, natural historian, professor, rhododendron student and gardener Bruce Palmer will give a sweeping, fascinating, and well-illustrated view of the heath family.Besides showy rhododendrons, azaleas, and heathers, this family includes delicious berries, like huckleberries, the diverse manzanitas, and some curious, non-green herbaceous species, like Indian Pipe. Bruce will also detail what we mean by plant families, what it means to be a member of the family Ericaceae, why some members of the family evolved where they are, and how their ancestors got there.
