TNN: Ethnobotany and Flower Folklore with Alonso Abugattas; Oct. 29

Thursday, October 29 7:00 pm
Thursday, October 29 8:00 pm


Join us for an introduction into Ethnobotany, or the study of how people use plants, and the folklore that surrounds them. Each plant has its own story, history and use that will be introduced, featuring our native plants.

Award-winning naturalist, storyteller, and environmental educator Alonso Abugattas (the Capital Naturalist) shares his insights on the natural world. Co-Chair for the Beltway Chapter of the National Association for Interpretation (NAI), the professional organization for naturalists, historians, and others who interpret resources, Alonso is a Certified Heritage Interpreter and has received regional and national awards, including the Regional Interpretive Manager of the Year and the national Master Interpretive Manager both in 2018. He was also awarded that same year with the Thomas Say Interpretive Media Award for his social media outlets. I invite you to also check out my other award-winning social media platforms: the “Capital Naturalist” Blog or Capital Naturalist YouTube Channel, or follow me on Twitter: @CapNaturalist.
