Ernesto Sandoval - Trip to Namibia

Mr. Sandoval has been the curator of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory for many years. He has made presentations to our club on several occasions. Mr. Sandoval has amassed a tremendous spectrum of experience cultivating, photographing plants, and traveling to areas in southern Africa.

This time, he will be taking us to Namibia, the home of the Namib, considered one of the oldest deserts in the world. The arid lands of Namibia are the natural habitat for a variety of wild flowers and succulent plants including Lithops.

Mr. Sandoval will be bringing rare plants from the conservatory for sale.
