Arctic Plant Adaptations - a fitting topic for our Christmas in June meeting!
Catherine Kennedy, a vegetation ecologist for the Yukon Government, has spent every field season conducting ecological surveys with soil and terrain scientists throughout the territory. Her work over three decades has included vegetation inventories of numerous parks and protected areas, such as Herschel Island and Ivvavik, and researching vegetation change on the Yukon's North Slope. Her talk will focus on the adaptations of Arctic plants for survival in the harsh northern climate.
Tonight's meeting will also be our Christmas in June! The December 2018 meeting/auction was cancelled because of bad weather and rescheduled for tonight, minus the snow and ice!. Baked goods are a good seller; crafts, books, plants, etc. will be acceptable! So come on out for our silent auction, baked goodies, and a terrific talk on Arctic plants.
