Programs 2018:

Guxmania speciesFebruary 15: Bolivia with Carl Carter
"We drove an SUV 3000 miles, sometimes on paved roads, through the highlands and lowlands of Bolivia. Tillandsias and Puyas will be the focus of this presentation. And as this was my second visit I had a wish-list of must see plants. Along the way you’ll see insects, birds, orchids, palms, philodendrons, ferns and even roadside cacti. Come see why I am eager to return to Bolivia again."
