The Living Prairie Museum has been asked to host a special lecture on behalf of the University of Manitoba.
Every year, the U of M hosts a seminar series in memoriam of botanist Dr. William Hanna, the university’s first distinguished alumnus.
This years’ Hanna speaker will be Dr. Barbara Hawkins from the University of Victoria (poster attached). She will be presenting Trees and Fungi: Partners in Grime. This lecture discusses adaptations of mycorrhizal communities (soil-root fungi) in different soil types, and the symbiotic relationship between trees and mycorrhizal communities. The content is intended for a general audience in order to engage the public in current research. The lecture takes place on Thursday, March 28th at 7 PM, with a mixer to follow.
We have 15 seats reserved for Friends of the Living Prairie Museum members. Please call the museum (204-832-0167) to reserve your seat by Monday, March 25th. The seats that remain will be made available to the public.
We hope you can attend this very special event!
