We've heard a lot about pollination, the plight of honeybees, and Monarch butterflies lately, but what about other ways that humans, plants, and animals are connected and impact each other? How do plants, ants, fungi, and so many other things connect with each other? Using puzzle-solving as a metaphor, Alonso Abugattas will unlock other less-familiar dependencies and intricacies in nature all around us in his talk to the Takoma Hort Club and guests.
Alonso Abugattas is the Natural Resources Manager for Arlington County Parks, VA, with 20+ years as a professional naturalist. He is a Virginia Master Naturalist and Master Gardener and serves as an instructor for local chapters on a variety of natural history topics. He is a past president of the Potowmack Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society, and long-time Co-chair for the Beltway Chapter of the National Association for Interpretation, the professional organization for naturalists, zookeepers, and museum docents
