Wendell S. (Woody) Minnich wants us to know, when travelling around the world in succulent rich regions, he has observed an amazing increase in the devastation of habitats and the illegal removal of many rare and endangered species of cacti, succulents, and other plants. Woody will show us which countries have the biggest problems and a few simple positive things we can all do; like, don’t buy field collected plants, support the artificial propagation of rare or endangered species, support our nurseries who produce artificially grown material, demonstrate our appreciation for artificially produced plants, and help our enforcement agencies to better stop illegal collecting and the sale of wild grown plants.
Come join Woody to increase your conservation awareness and make a difference for future generations.
1:00 PM, South Coast Botanic Garden, 26300 Crenshaw Blvd., Palos Verdes Peninsula 90274. Presentation is open to South Coast Cactus & Succulent Society members or with Paid Garden Admission. For more information visit southcoastcss.org.
