The October monthly meeting of the Taos chapter is on “The Importance of Pollen,” presented by Ken Bower, retired educator and docent at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. He will tell us about the structure and function of pollen, how pollen grains differ from one another, what makes up a pollen grain and why pollen is so important to plants and animals.
As part of his talk, Dr. Bower will also discuss the records he has kept on pollen and flowering schedules in his garden and the plants in a quarter-mile radius around his property as well as flowering schedules for two public gardens in Santa Fe.
Meetings are held 6-7:30 PM on 3rd Wednesdays in the Kit Carson Electric Cooperative boardroom, 118 Cruz Alta Rd. All meetings are free and open to the public. Please join us and bring your friends! Feel free to contact us at TaosNPS@gmail.com with any questions.
