Description

Saturday, June 22, 9am - 12pm | $30/$25 members
You’re invited to join us for a brief introduction to botanical Latin. Learn the names for plants and the way the names are constructed. We’ll look at some common Latin and Greek roots for plant names and botanical terms, and use some simple rules of thumb to pronounce
plant names with confidence. Al Luongo originally developed this course for the New York Botanical Garden and now he’s bringing it to Berkeley. The workshop will include a copy of the full course notes including a list of useful books and Web sites.
