Expert Talk – Louis Jordaan – Familiarity breeds care!
Expert Talk – Louis Jordaan
Friday 16 September – 13:00
Venue: Calitzdorp Station
This is a free event. No booking required.
An excellent introduction to the plant treasures we have all around us that will inspire you to properly observe, interpret, appreciate and cherish them. The talk will be illustrated by a presentaton of photos of these plants alongside a discussion of their very interesting (and appropriate?) common names – sometimes with the tongue firmly in the cheek! Louis will be showing photos of other organisms and for some, their absorbing “stories” will be told. You will leave the talk enlightened to the fact that when dealing with creatures of nature, familiarity does not breed contempt but care!
Louis Jordaan is a nature guide and environmental educator. He is an interpreter, a ‘storyteller’, unveiling a wealth of ‘stories’ (facts, interpretations, explanations, uses, superstitions, etc.) of plants and other creatures and objects of nature. Louis also provides nature lovers with knowledge and skills which allow them to discover and unravel secrets and mysteries that may require a more expert and trained ‘eye’ – he guides people to observe with all their senses, and to understand what they have discovered.
