The term “endangered species” conjures up images of majestic mammals and colourful orchids in remote places of the world, but Manitoba also has rare plants, including a new species of Canadian water lily. Dr. Bizecki Robson will talk about her years studying the rarest plants of Manitoba, providing a new appreciation of the plant world and the intricate ties that bind species together. Dr. Diana Bizecki Robson has researched endangered prairie plants, focusing on prairie pollination and the conservation of wild crop pollinators. She works as the Curator of Botany at the Manitoba Museum. Register online or by phoning any library branch.
