January Program: "Dudleya: Succulent Diversity in Our Own Backyard"
presented by John Martinez and Nils Schirmacher

Our local mountains are home to a plentiful and varied assortment of Dudleya. Each of the 11 species and 6 subspecies inhabiting the Santa Monica and San Bernardino Mountains can be found within an hour’s drive from central Los Angeles. For the past two years, John Martinez and Nils Schirrmacher have photographed these succulents in habitat, trekking slopes and canyons to uncover our native treasures. Their introduction to the breadth of local Dudleya will feature their photos and impart lessons learned in the field.

John currently lives in Moorpark with his wife Linda and is a retired Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief. He is a member of the San Fernando Valley Bromeliad Society, the Los Angeles CSS, San Gabriel Valley CSS, a founding member of the newly formed Conejo CSS, and a past volunteer at the Huntington Botanical Garden. John has a deep fondness for nature and has been growing xeric plants most of his adult life. Over the past 6 years he has shared a co-op succulent growing compound in Somis with three experienced growers of cactus, succulents, and other exotics.

Aside from maintaining his plant collection, John’s time is divided between gardening, golf, photography, occasional fly fishing, and grandchildren. As a native of Southern California, John attended California State University of Northridge, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Art.
