Each fall for the past twenty-two years, conservation biologist William McNamara has ventured into the mountains of China, Japan, and India in search of unusual plants. McNamara will share tales from his annual treks and show slides from his travels in the “great collecting district of Asia” known as the “Edge of the World.”
William McNamara is the Executive Director of the Quarryhill Botanical Garden, a woodland in the Valley of the Moon, founded in 1987 on the rolling hills above Glen Ellen, California. Quarryhill features one of the largest collections of documented, wild-collected Asian plants in the world.
