Talks on Tap! California Plants: A Tour Through Our Iconic Flora

Join us at 7Sisters Brewing for our next "Talks on Tap" event, where experts, nerds, and other people-in-the-know tell us all about a fascinating topic while we sip beer!

Join Matt Ritter, botany professor and author of the new book California Plants, for a visual tour and celebration of California’s iconic native flora. There are more than 5,000 native species in California—one in five of which are now rare or endangered. Professor Ritter’s talk will feature the state’s special plants and where to see them this spring.

Dr. Matt Ritter is a botany professor in the Biological Sciences Department at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California, where he studies California’s native plants and cultivated trees. He’s the author of several books, including the funniest and best-selling guide to California’s urban forest, A Californian’s Guide to the Trees among Us. www.mattritter.net
