Dean of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies in Los Angeles!
   
Join us to hear Sir Peter Crane speak at the Huntington Library!

Yale Blue Green is thrilled to announce that Sir Peter Crane, the Dean of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies is coming to Los Angeles! The Dean will be giving a public lecture at the Huntington Library in San Marino. His topic will be "Silver Apricot: A Biography of Ginkgo in Space and Time" (see below for more information).

Immediately after the lecture, the Dean will be hosting a simple reception, to which all the Yale and F&ES folks are heartily welcome. This is all open to the public, but Dean Crane and Yale Blue Green would very much like to see you all there!

No need to RSVP, but please plan to arrive early if you are coming. These lectures do fill to capacity. And wear your Yale blue so we can find you! If you have any questions, please email Darcy Troy Pollack at darcykp@mac.com.  


Ginkgo is one of the most distinctive of all urban street trees, among the best examples of a botanical “living fossil”, and a key is key to understanding important aspects of plant evolution, yet this extraordinary plant was almost driven to extinction by the cold global climates of the past five million years. This lecture will trace the rich paleontological and cultural history of Ginkgo over the past 250 million years from its origin, proliferation and eventual decline, to its reprieve, renewal and resurgence through its association with people. The dominant theme in the biography of Ginkgo is survival, and its life story offers hope for other botanical biographies that are still being written.
