Plant Hunting in China - Sept 14th

Don't miss Bill McNamara at Brooklin Horticultural September 14th.

Bill will be speaking about his expeditions to China to save endangered plants from annihilation. For more than a century until the 1930’s, central Asia was the key source of flowering plants. This area only re-opened to the world in the 1980’s. With heavy logging, and urban and agricultural expansion, this habitat is being destroyed, leading to plant extinction. Bill has participated in 23 expeditions to China to collect seeds and endangered plants for study and conservation, sharing them with botanical gardens around the world.
