Jack Nisbet will be our guest on Saturday, March 22nd, to speak on the topic of David Douglas, a Scotsman who came to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1800’s undertaking a naturalist’s explorations. A coinciding exhibit is being shown at the Washington State History Museum, (Tacoma) recently extended through May 2014. Mr. Nisbet is an award winning author. The lecture is being underwritten with funds awarded the Padilla Bay Foundation by Humanities Washington. It is being co-hosted by the Foundation, Edna’s Neighbors (http://ednasneighbors.wordpress.com/) and the Salal Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society. Jack will take 30 participants on a plant identification walk of the upland trail at the Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve to begin the day’s events. He will then lecture, and finish with a book signing of among several titles: David Douglas: A Naturalist at Work”.
