About this event

Class meets three times online:

Thursday, July 29, 5:30-7:30pm

Thursday, August 5, 5:30-7:30pm

Thursday, August 12, 5:30-7:30pm

How do some plants make do with far less water than others? How do plants defend against sun and heat damage? How does elevation affect plants?

Biology professor and master gardener Valerie Wong will answer these questions and more in a special three-part course developed especially with native plant gardeners in mind! Great for botany enthusiasts and gardeners of all skill levels looking for a deeper understanding of how plants respond to their environment.

This class will be held online via Zoom and recorded. Login instructions will be included in the reminder emails. Students will have access to a recording of the class through August 19.

Valerie Wong teaches a variety of college biology courses at PCC and Cal State LA along with Botany and Plant Taxonomy and Identification in the UCLA Extension Horticulture and Gardening program. Valerie earned a bachelor's degree in biochemistry from Wellesley College and a Ph.D. in Plant and Microbial Biology at UC Berkeley. In her down time, Valerie serves as a UC Master Gardener for LA County and is a sometimes successful, always enthusiastic gardener who happily eliminated her front yard in favor of flowering, low-water shrubberies.
