The Arboretum welcomes back botany Professor Matt Ritter of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, to discuss and celebrate Australian trees for Southern California gardens. El Niño or not, it’s dry in California and likely to get drier. More trees from Australia will be part of the solution toward creating beautiful, diverse, and resilient urban forests with less and less water. We’ll explore future drought tolerant, appropriate Australian species. This event will be partial classroom lecture and discussion and part tree walk in the Arboretum’s world class collection of Australian trees.
