Greg Torres spoke to a full house at Oxbow in November, when he discussed invasive plants that are encroaching on our parks and woodlands, and best practices for their removal. This time, he will tell us about his favorite time of year, Spring, when forest floors are splendid with native wildflowers. His photography is a treat!
Before moving to Cincinnati, Greg worked nearly a decade in South Florida as a Florida Master Naturalist, Interpretive Guide, and Program Leader in Collier County’s Department of Parks and Recreation. Since arriving in Cincinnati Greg has worked with the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s horticulture team and Cincinnati Park’s Greenspaces. Greg joined the Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati in July 2017. Greg is charged with overseeing the gardens on the Civic Garden Center site and instructing members of the community on horticultural topics, emphasizing native plants. He also enjoys working locally to benefit the community and is an active volunteer and President of Northside Greenspaces, Inc.
