Robert Soreng will speak to the Rock Spring Garden Club on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 11:00 am at Little Falls Presbyterian Church, 6025 Little Falls Road. A Botanist with the Smithsonian, he traveled to Russia in the summer of 2018 to collect native grasses for research and inclusion in the Smithsonian’s renowned National Herbarium. Rob’s specialty is the large genus of Poa, the bluegrasses. His photographic presentation offers a stunning glimpse of the challenges and natural beauty of working in the Siberian region.
The program is free; an optional lunch is $5. For information on the program or on the organization see the Web site at www.rockspringgardenclub.com.
