Monthly Guild Gathering Wednesday December 2nd with David Theodoropoulos

Come join us on Wednesday December 2nd from 6:30-9:00PM at Matter of Trust at 3338 17th Street (near Mission) in San Francisco for our Monthly Guild Gathering! This event is FREE.

Bay Area Native & Exotic Plants, Land Use & Politics

Q&A and Discussion with: 
David Theodoropoulos, Author of Invasion Biology: Critique of a Pseudoscience

In his book, Invasion Biology: Critique of a Pseudoscience, David takes on the notion that bio-invasion is a problem, while addressing the psychology and politics driving fear of “invaders.” Using case studies from the scientific literature, he examines how man-dispersed species increase biodiversity and benefit ecosystems.

David will share his perspective on Bay Area “native” and “exotic” plants, and how these categories influence land-use policies. We will discuss the role of Eucalyptus in our local bio-region, as well as the local municipal land management strategies to manage standing trees.

This will be an interactive discussion, so please bring your questions!
