On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. Admission is free for members, children, and students with ID, and $5 for non-members. Meetings also include expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum table, and we often have Plant Raffles. Plants, used and new books and magazines are usually for sale at the meetings. For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.
In February, the Southern California Horticultural Society will meet at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens’ Witherbee Auditorium, to see a program by Evan Meyer, the newly-appointed Executive Director of the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants. The evening’s presentation will include stories of his travels throughout California, as well as a slide show and talk about his recent expedition to the Western Cape of South Africa. Meyer will discuss the similarities and differences in the landscapes of these botanically diverse Mediterranean-climate regions.
We are looking forward to seeing and hearing about Meyer’s horticultural adventures and expect this program to be both entertaining and informative. We invite you to come to the Zoo to share in this experience!
