Hamilton Fellow Lecture Series: Living Fossils

Thursday, February 18 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Presented by Heather Titanich, Hamilton Educational Fellow

Non-flowering and flowering plants have evolved for over 300 million years. While many of these species are extinct or highly evolved today, some have remained relatively unchanged. These living fossils offer a peek back in time and can show us how our landscapes evolved to what we see today. Join Hamilton Educational Fellow, Heather Titanich, as she talks about the evolution, biology, and cultural significance of these historic species.

The Hamilton Fellow Lecture Series is a series of talks given by the current Hamilton Educational Fellows. The Fellowship provides an immersive educational experience in the unparalleled setting of Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens. Fellows will acquire specialized skills and practical knowledge that will benefit them in pursuit of a career in the fields of horticulture, botany, biology, or environmental resource management.

Lecture will be held virtually. A link and viewing instructions will be emailed after your registration is complete.

Free of charge; registration is required.
