Join us as we discuss Dr. Mark Plotkin’s Tales of a Shaman’s Apprentice and explore the plants in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory. Described as a skillful blend of travel adventure, botanical and cultural history, and Amazonian research, this book is sure to lead to lively and eye-opening discussion. The afternoon will begin with a docent-led tour of the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory, exploring the tropical plants used by indigenous people, followed by a discussion of the book.
