Botany of the Holidays

December 7, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The holidays are a time for rest, relaxation, family and friends. To a botanist, they are also a case study of the deeply interconnected relationship between nature and culture. Join us as we share the botanical origins of some of the most ubiquitous holiday traditions, and see just how important plants are to the spirit of the season. We’re back for 2018 with new plants to explore! A reception will follow the presentation.




This event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP.

The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
