The speaker series is available to all members of LBGC! Membership information is available on our website www.lagunabeachgardenclub.org.
Our October speaker, Dr. Matt Ritter will guide us through a Zoom presentation, about the trees of California, which has been his life-long passion. He is a Biology professor at Cal Poly SLO and shares his love of California trees with his hundreds of university students each year. Dr. Ritter is the author of A Californian's Guide to The Trees Among Us, which features over 150 of California's most commonly growing trees. Dr. Ritter also authored California Plants: A Guide To Our Iconic Flora, which he describes California's landscapes and iconic plants. He is an expert in his field and we are looking forward to all that he has to share. He was raised in a small Northern California town where a love of trees was cultivated through woodworking, gardening and educational experiences from San Diego to Northern California. Matt nurtures curiosity and wonder about the green world around us. His ability to teach people about the wonder of trees and plants comes through in all he does, in the hope to open our eyes to the beauty right outside.
