California Horticultural Society, our sister organisation, invites members to an online meeting which will include an illustrated lecture “Armenia: Nature and Climate” by guest speaker Tamar Galstyan (pictured). Tamar has explored the exceptionally diverse flora of her native country and her book A Field Guide to the Plants of Armenia will be published this autumn. The meeting starts at 18.30 PDT on Monday 19 July (02.30 BST on Tuesday 20 July). A link to the recording will be published on this page shortly after the event. MPG plans to repeat its 2015 field trip to Armenia soon.
