Our February speaker will be Dennis Whigham. Dennis is the Senior Botanist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and Director of the North American Orchid Conservation Center. His goal is to secure the genetic diversity of our native orchids for future generations. His talk will focus on these goals and how his organization hopes to achieve success. It should be a very informative evening. Please try and attend. Dennis will be coming a considerable distance from Maryland to give this talk.
