Cactus Chronicles: The joy of finding, identifying and photographing cacti in the Las Cruces area

Naturalist and award-winning photographer Lisa Mandelkern takes us to the desert to show us blooming cactus species in their natural habitats.  Many of the cacti are small plants, easily overlooked, but all beg to be observed. It is an unforgettable experience to chance upon a glorious, flowering cactus! This talk will include information on identifying individual members of the cactus clan. We will also talk about some of the unique adaptations that have enabled cacti to live and thrive in our arid lands.
