"Borneo Exploration" and “Where Do Our Plants Come From?” By Karen Randall (AGA) Presented by GSAS
The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society is pleased to announce for our first meeting of the 2018-2019 season one of our most-requested speakers, plant guru Karen Randall! Karen's expertise is on planted display aquariums and the study and propagation of aquatic plants. She's an author (her book Sunken Gardens was published last year), a photographer, publisher, aquascaping contest judge and organizer.
And she is also an explorer: Karen travels frequently to study aquatic plants in the wild. On Tuesday, September 11th, Karen will be premiering a brand new talk on her most recent exploration to Borneo – GSAS will be the first club in the world to see this talk! Normal meeting time and location, 7:30 PM (6:30 setup and social hour) at Seattle Pacific University Otto Miller Hall, Room 109. Monthly auction to follow.
Collecting with Christel Kasselmann
In addition, Karen has agreed to present a second, beginner-friendly talk on Monday September 10th, entitled “Where Do Our Plants Come From?” This presentation examines collecting in the wild, identification, commercial nursery farming, tissue culture plants and how to use them effectively, and plants that are mostly traded between hobbyists (and why). This talk will also be in Otto Miller Hall, but starting at 7 PM. Because this will be presentation only, we should be out by 8:30 (or 9 if y’all have tons of questions!).
The presentation, which is open to the public, will be Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 at 7:30 PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West.
Doors will open about 6:30 PM for a 'social hour'; the meeting will start at 7:30 PM.
After the meeting, join us for our monthly auction and help to support the club that brings us all our these outstanding speakers.
