Field Trip – Ira Canyon in the Burro Mountains

The Gila Native Plant Society will have the next Field Trip on Sunday, September 16, 2018. And this will be the last one for this year!

Where we’ll go
The Gila Native Plant Society will conduct a field trip this Sunday
(September 16, 2018) to Ira Canyon near the Gila River in the Burro Mountains. This will be a moderate hike, relatively flat, with some walking on sand.

What we’ll see
We can expect to see Thurber’s desert honeysuckle (Anisacanthus thurberi), Wright’s beebrush (Aloysia wrightii), and littleleaf mulberry (Morus microphylla). The rains may have brought some surprises, too.

Meet at 8:00 am in the south parking lot of the WNMU Fine Arts Center Theater for carpooling.
