Fall 2017 Wayne Roderick Lectures

Fall/Winter 2017 (Plus 2018 Preview)

Join us for our popular series of free public lectures on a broad array of topics related to plants and natural history. Named in honor of its
founder, the Wayne Roderick Lecture Series takes place on Saturday mornings from November through February at 10:30 a.m. in the
Visitor Center of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden. These
illustrated presentations are enjoyable for beginners and
professionals alike. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Seating is limited, so it is advisable to arrive early, save a seat, and|
enjoy the garden until lecture time. If you have not attended a
lecture recently, you will definitely notice that we have new
comfortable chairs. The coming season of Wayne Roderick Lectures
will take you from California’s deserts to the High Sierra, Montana, Wisconsin, Mexico, the Galapagos Islands, Africa and other locales.
