EVENT: Wild Urban Plants, Wed. 7/18, 7:00pm

The Gowanus Canal Conservancy has been hosting a Wednesday Night Lecture Series over the last couple of months. Tonight’s event, and the final of the series, is entitled Wild Urban Plants. The lecture will be given at the 61 Local mezzanine, at 61 Bergen Street, Brooklyn.

Admission is $5 or free if you renew or become a new member of the Conservancy. Peter Del Tredici, PhD of Harvard University’s School of Design will be leading the discussion. The discussion will focus on urban ecology and the identification of plants that grow spontaneously in cities, as discussed in Del Tredici’s new book Wild Urban Plants of the Northeast: A Field Guide (2010, Cornell University Press).
