Event Details

Whether your drink of choice is beer, wine, cocktails, coffee, or tea, plants make up many of the beverages we enjoy every day, and the natural history of these important plant species is deeply intertwined with the cultural history of these drinks. Join Canadian Museum of Nature botanist Paul Sokoloff in exploring the botany behind what’s in your cup.
Can you identify all the beverage-related plants in the photos? See below for answers.

Monthly meetings are open to OHS members and non-members alike at no charge. Meeting room is upstairs.
