Winter Biology Lecture – Terri Knoke, “Falling for Lomatium”
Yakima Valley College, in collaboration with the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy, kicks off the Winter Biology Lecture Series with Terri Knoke. Terri Knoke, of the Washington Native Plant Society, will describe her own personal journey into the world of native plants, especially those of the shrub steppe of the Columbia Basin. She will relate how, at the age of sixty, she fell down the rabbit hole of botany and art and into the wonderland of native plants. The desert parsleys were her downfall, and in tribute to them she will relate stories about ten species of Lomatium that live here on Cowiche Canyon Conservancy lands. How are these plants connected to fish and grapefruits? Come find out at this presentation on the diverse and fascinating genera of native plants. The lecture will be held in Glenn Anthon Hall, Building 4, Room 215. Admission is free and open to the community.
