Gila: “Spring Blooms in the Southwest: Not Just Creosote Bush” CANCELLED, along with all March activities.

Meeting. “Spring Blooms in the Southwest: Not Just Creosote Bush,” presenter Donna Stevens

Not to disparage Creosote Bush, of course, which is one of the best smells on the planet. While spring in the Southwest is not the same as in the East, it still offers much to celebrate. If November is any predictor of winter precipitation, the spring 2020 bloom will be glorious. And if November turns out to be an anomaly, there will still be plenty of wildflowers to enjoy in the spring. This presentation will feature some of the most common spring wildflowers in southwest New Mexico. Donna Stevens is a co-author of Common Southwestern Native Plants: An Identification Guide, now in its third edition. Her idea of a good time is taking a hike to observe our beautiful native flora.

Meetings are held on the third Friday of the month at 7 PM at WNMU’s Harlan Hall, Rm. 219. Free and open to the public. Refreshments following the program. For more information check our website at
