Main Program

Our speaker this month will be Shawnee Luciani, and the topic will be "Orchid Bugs: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

Shawnee began volunteering with the UW Biology Greenhouse in 2013. Here she soaked up plant knowledge like an epiphytic root, and in 2015 was offered a position working in the greenhouses. One Plant Biology bachelor’s degree and a greenhouse relocation later, she is still hard at work making the world a greener and more floriferous place. After an exhaustive course in entomology, her interests broadened to include arthropods. Since then, she has taken control of the greenhouse’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program and is excited to discuss battle tactics at the January meeting.
