The Value for Us of Observing Plants In Our Own Local Natural Habitats
Guest Speaker: Susan Munch, PhD
Professor of Botany, retired; Albright College
Dr. Munch will discuss the importance of nature, and especially of plants, in giving us beauty, peace, and serenity, with emphasis on simple small green plants and the water that supports them. Local plants and habitats can be as beneficial to us as distant ones that seem grander and more impressive.
A native of St. Louis MO, Dr. Munch is a graduate of Swarthmore and earned her PhD in Botany from the University of Washington in Seattle. She is a published author and has taught biology and botany in MD, VA, MT and OH. She has worked for the Ohio Department of Natural Areas and Preserves. She is a retired professor of biology from Albright College. In her own words, “I keep appreciating plants both in my own garden and out in the woods, and often take people on walks to look at all kinds of plants in various natural habitats near Oley, where I have lived for over 30 years.”
