Fraser South Rhododendron Society
Our Monthly Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month (except June, July and August) at the United Church Hall basement, 5673 – 200th St. Langley, BC. Doors open shortly after 7:00 pm and the meeting starts at 7:30 pm. Guests are most welcome to attend.
Next Meeting (April)
Wednesday, April 15, 2015 – 7:30 pm. Ron Long will speak on the unique botany of southern Oregon. Although not very far south of British Columbia, geologically and botanically southern Oregon seems much farther. The unusual geology there has led to the evolution of many unusual alpine plants, some of which are absolutely unique.
Ron Long was science photographer at Simon Fraser University for thirty-six years. He began photographing flowers over forty years ago and soon developed an interest in floral photography that he admits borders on obsession. Now retired, Ron travels to wildflower hot spots around the world and gives many presentations to garden clubs between trips. This talk on southern Oregon is one of his favourites.
