    Name: Gila Native Plant Society field trip
    Date: July 21, 2019
    Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT
    Event Description:
    The Gila Native Plant Society continues its program of monthly field trips with a visit to the Pinos Altos Range. Our field trip leader, Hanna Blood, will lead the group on a moderate hike up a spur off Signal Peak Road. The dirt track travels up an incline through the Ponderosa and Gamble Oak forest (the way back is downhill) to a cold sink where we will find a meadow filled with Rocky Mountain Iris (Iris missouriensis), and where New Mexico Checker Mallow (Sidalcea neomexicana) and Stiff Blue-Eyed Grass Sisyrinchium demissium) are growing side by side. For those who are new to the native plants of our area, or just new to botany, during the outing Don Groves and Jane Spinti will provide an introduction to some of the basic aspects of plant identification.

    Location:
    Meet at 8 a.m. in the south parking lot of the WNMU Fine Arts Center Theatre for carpooling.
