February Meeting Speaker CHANGE

Wenqing Perner, from Hengduan Mountains Biotechnology, will not be able to speak at our February meeting because she is unable to fly to the USA due to the China coronavirus travel ban.  We hope to have her speak at some time in the future.

Our replacement speaker will be Mary Gerritsen.  Mary will give a presentation about her recent trip with the Orchid Conservation Alliance to the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Travel virtually with her to see the Mayan ruins of Palenque, Bonaparte and Yaxchilan, and orchids of the lowland rainforest, subtropical spiny forests and high elevation cloud forests.
