FEBRUARY 2018 NEWSLETTER:
This month we present two stories about how palms and the Roman Catholic religion intermingle. Both stories are about the use of palms during Holy Week. In addition, we provide a glimpse of harvesting fruits on tall palms (Euterpe spp.) and information about the planned post Biennial trips.
