Join Matt Ritter, botany professor and author of the new book California Plants, for a visual tour and celebration of California’s iconic native flora.

There are more than 5,000 native species in California—one in five of which are now rare or endangered. Author Matt Ritter, professor of botany at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, will take attendees on a visual “tour” through the state’s most iconic flora in a lecture based on his new book, California Plants. A richly illustrated field guide to the state’s spectacular native plants, the book also seeks to raise awareness of the unique beauty that is at risk. California Governor Jerry Brown writes in the book’s foreword, “Matt Ritter teaches us to better understand how our future is linked to that of all other living things: our soil, our microbiota, and our wonderful and indomitable native plants.”

Matt will use his beautiful photographs, insight, and humor to share the natural history of California’s fascinating plants. A book signing will follow the presentation.

The walk is separate from the talk and is limited to 30 participates
