Brown Bag Series: Wading For Water Lilies

October 2, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

How a landlubber botanist overcame her fear of getting wet  in the pursuit of science – By Dr. Diana Robson
October 2, Tuesday 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Auditorium


For years, Diana, Curator of Botany, has been avoiding collecting aquatic plants due to her fear of getting a boot-full of muddy water.  However, aquatic plants are severely under-represented in the Museum’s collection.  Information about their distribution is important due to ongoing threats to water quality in the province.  Although the botany collection at the Museum consists of almost 50,000 plant and fungal specimens, majority are from terrestrial habitats such as grasslands and forests. Diana will recount how she overcame her aversion to getting her feet wet in the pursuit of aquatic plant specimens for the collection.  Details on her search of the Minago River, in pursuit of a new species of water-lily, will be recounted along with her 2018 field work exploring ponds, lakeshores and riparian habitats at Patricia Beach, Turtle Mountain, Hecla/Grindstone and Spruce Woods Provincial Parks.


All talks in the Brown Bag Lunch Series are included with admission to any of our three venues (Museum, Science Gallery or Planetarium), or FREE for members! Bring your lunch, and join us in the Auditorium for a noon-hour talk from one of our amazing Museum staff members.
