Program Meeting on October 19 at 7 pm
Weird Year for Native Plants Amy Belk
Join Amy Belk, the manager of Pima County's Native Plant Nursery, for a discussion about who we are, what we do, and what we are seeing in our native plants after a weird year of droughts and floods, superblooms and unprecedented foraging from both insects and mammals. With a focus on cacti and succulent plant communities, we will talk about the situation both before and after our substantial summer rains, and we will look ahead at what we might expect to see this fall and winter as we traverse Tucson's trails.
