Saturday, July 16, 2022, 8 a.m. to noon – Field Trip: “Learn Your Trees” with Don Graves

GNPS President Don Graves will lead this field trip for those new to the Gila area, new to native plants, or just wanting to brush up on their tree identification. The group will travel to Cherry Creek Campground, McMillan Campground, and Signal Peak Meadow. Participants will learn some botany basics, understand how plants are named, and learn how to use a botanical key to identify local trees.

A hat, water and sturdy shoes are recommended. Bring your hand lens, if you have one. Participants will be expected to sign a waiver before the field trip.

Meet at 8 am at the Silva Creek Botanical Garden on North Virginia Street (two blocks north of Route 180).
