(AT) Native Plant Society Of Texas Collin County Meeting
March 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Hello BPTMN Master Naturalists!
You are invited to the March 2, 2021 virtual meeting of the Collin County Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas. The virtual meeting starts at 6:30 pm for social time and the presentation begins at 7:00 pm.
Program Topic: Discovering Texas Botanical Heritage (Early Texas Botanists) presented Barney L. Lipscomb – Director of BRIT Press and Library, Leonhardt Chair of Texas Botany
Botanical exploration of Texas essentially began in the early 1800s; it is a 200-year love affair with plants, and is truly a story of great adventures, of extraordinary discoveries, of brave and heroic men and women. Barney L. Lipscomb takes you back to not only the pioneer days when several hundred men and women of science labored in Texas, but also to the men and women who were at the front of botanical discovery in Texas in the 20th century. Discover and learn about the greatest Texas explorers who documented the magnificent Texas’ botanical heritage. In the end, we will look to the 21st century and identify areas of Texas in need of further exploration, either because of poor coverage or because remaining areas of natural habitat are in imminent danger of disappearing.
