Arlen Hill:  Journey through Western Sichuan and Guizhou Provinces

Arlen Hill will take us on a photo journey through southwestern China, his first foray into the wilds of China to botanize and collect plants.  In the words of a travel companion, "these trips are one part cultural, one part spiritual and one part plants".
                                                    
 

Arlen Hill is the proprietor of  Keeping It Green Nursery, a retail and mail-order nursery in Stanwood Washington, where he grows rare and unusual plants from around the world, including ferns, bulbs, perennials, shrubs and trees.   A specialty is hardy orchids and woodland perennials.  Arlen will have plants for sale at the meeting.
