 Ever wonder how the Douglas fir got its name?  The distinctive Pacific Northwest evergreen gained its name from Scottish botanist and explorer David Douglas. Gary Lentz will talk about Douglas' travels when he arrived in the Northwest by ship from England in 1825. The free Museum After Hours presentation, Trifles will not stop me — the story of David Douglas, will be at 5 p.m. Oct. 28 at Fort Walla Walla Museum, 755 NE Myra Road. Masks are required on museum grounds.
