The Botany Section of Nature Vancouver presents Daniel Mosquin - Photographer & Educator in an Online Zoom Presentation on Thursday Nov 19th at 7:30pm PSTThis year, with Covid19 restrictions in place most botanical outings have been kept close to home. In this beautiful presentation by acclaimed local photographer and ‘botanical communicator’ Daniel Mosquin, we’ll slip across the closed border for an evening to explore the amazing botanical diversity of Oregon. Daniel will be highlighting the plants and landforms of the four disparate corners of the state: the temperate rainforest of the northwest, the ancient un-glaciated serpentine soils of the southwest, the volcanic and desert-like southeast, and the canyons and rolling hills of the northeast. Daniel’s superb photography and extensive knowledge of the Pacific Northwest’s plants and ecosystems should provide a wonderful diversion from the grey days of Autumn. Daniel Mosquin’s enduring interest in plants started early, with family wildflower walks followed by plant biology studies at the University of Manitoba and UBC. For the past 20 years Daniel has worked at the UBC Botanical Garden, filling several different roles, including managing in areas such as research, education, and IT. He is currently Research Manager, Faculty of Science, Botanical Garden and Centre Plant Research at UBC’s Vancouver Campus. He is also principal editor, frequent author and photographer for the UBC Garden’s Botany Photo of the Day feature. This presentation will be aired via Zoom Video Conferencing.
