Cal Poly botanist celebrates California's native plants in new book

May 3, 2018

A California native himself, San Luis Obispo resident Dr. Matt Ritter is passionate about the state's native plants. Ritter teaches in the biological sciences department at Cal Poly and just came out with a new book titled California Plants: A Guide to Our Iconic Flora.

KCBX's Greta Mart invited the professor to the KCBX studio this week to talk about his recent work, the county's flowers and why it's important to keep a check on invasive plants.
