Making Sense of Science returns Wednesday, September 28 from 4 to 6PM at La Mirage Hotel and Spa. Dr. Lou Jost will be sharing his exciting new and groundbreaking work, which has led to the discovery of a new species of orchids in the mountains surrounding Banos, Ecuador. Darwin used the Galapagos Islands to develop much of his theory of evolution. But things are still evolving and new species are being formed through a process called speciation. Come join us and discover how these beautiful flowers are still evolving leading to beautiful new species right here in the mountains surrounding Banos, Ecuador.
