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.
