Film: 'Finding David Douglas'

The local chapter of the Native Plant Society is sponsoring "Finding David Douglas," 7 p.m. in Room 1.366 at Columbia Gorge Community College, The Dalles campus. This hour-long documentary is about the 19th century Scottish botanist/plant hunter David Douglas (1799-1834). Douglas explored western North America in a time before white settlement altered the landscape. He discovered and introduced more than 200 new species to the gardens and forests of Europe.
