Come join us for a lovely illustrated presentation on the National Botanic Garden of Cuba. Dr. Carlos Sanchez is a professor of botany at the University of Havana and botanist for the National Botanic Garden of Cuba. This summer Carlos is a visiting research scholar at UC Berkeley, and he has been the guide for two tours to Cuba in support of the UC Botanical Garden. His current research is on the ferns and lycophytes of Cuba and their conservation. The talk will be immediately followed by a reception featuring Cuban inspired drinks.
