Saturday, September 24, 2022, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. – Field Trip: “Pollinators and Larval Host Plants of Signal Peak” with Don Graves

GNPS President Don Graves will lead this trip as part of the 18th Annual Gila River Festival.

There is an evolutionary bond between native plants and the pollinators that ensure not only their survival, but the survival of a whole host of ecosystem components. Join us on this exploration of Signal Peak, from the bottom wet meadow to the coniferous forest at the top. Along the way, we will experience these pollinators and native plants in an attempt to better understand this fragile ecosystem. Participants will also learn strategies to help bring this diversity to their own yards and landscaped spaces.

Participants will need to register and pay for this field trip at https://www.gilariverfestival.org/. GNPS is a major sponsor of the Gila River Festival.
