ROBIN RIVET will discuss Trees of Ill Repute: Shifting From Maligned to Benign. Responding to the question “Can we mend our broken urban forest?”, Rivet will explore how the urban forest impacts a city’s sustainability. She will share some cool ecological evaluation tools, some lesser known trees, best urban forestry practices, and San Diego’s Urban Mapping Project.
The evening starts at 6:00 p.m. in the Surfside Race Place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Jimmy Durante Blvd. in Del Mar. Parking is free and everyone is welcome. Admission is free for members and $10 for non-members. Before the lecture a plant expert will discuss one exceptional plant (a “Hot Hort Pick”) that is a star in the garden. An opportunity drawing featuring very special plants, including the Hot Hort Pick plant, will follow the lecture. For more information, call (619) 296-9215 or visit www.sdhortsoc.org.
