Village Talk – Spring Flowers of Marin

April 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Spring is an amazing time to experience the wonders of wildflowers and to gain an appreciation of the value of native plants.

We are honored to have Doreen Smith, member of the Marin County Native Plant Society, as our April speaker at the Village Museum. Doreen will present a slideshow and talk about the more familiar wildflowers of Marin, with an emphasis on those growing at China Camp State Park.

Doreen is well known for her expertise on the native flora of the county, and has spent many decades identifying and updating the local wildflower species lists on behalf of the Marin chapter of the California Native Plant Society. She also worked as a taxonomist at the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England and more recently at the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, preparing the newer edition of Howell’s Marin Flora. She is a botanist and educator and is a Marin County resident.

Space is limited and reservations are required. To reserve, send email to: chinacamp.programs@gmail.com Include your name and the number of seats you need. We will reply to confirm your reservation.
