Next Up: Green, White, and Blue Redwoods

SI ExifDid you know that not all redwood trees are red? On Saturday, July 19, John Stuart will present “Green, White, and Blue Redwoods” at the Garden. This illustrated talk will present the diversity and ecology of redwood ecosystems. These ecosystems stretch from Monterey County in the south clear to Curry County in Oregon. We will learn about habitat characteristics, habit differences, and the role disturbances have played in the perpetuation of redwood ecosystems. In addition, some of the unusual adaptations and features of redwoods will be highlighted.

John is a retired Humboldt State University professor of dendrology and forest ecology. He and his wife Mary live in Arcata and spend as much time enjoying their new trailer as possible. He is Co-author of “Trees and Shrubs of California,” and a member of the Board of Councilors of the Save the Redwood League.

The “Green, White, and Blue Redwoods” class will take place Saturday, July 19, 2014, at 11 a.m. in the HBGF Greenhouse. This activity if FREE to HBGF members, $10.00 for non-members (includes admission to the gardens).
