Ralph Peters, a local cactus aficionado, will share his photos and wide-ranging information about NM and area cactus—along with some ocotillo species. The presentation will include examples from all quadrants of the state including many unusual forms and flowers. He will share the history of the miniature cactus, Pediocactus knowltonii, found only on one hill in NM. Ralph is an expert in germinating and growing cacti from seed, especially with challenging species, and the presentation will include information about his propagation work as well.
HOW TO JOIN THE PRESENTATION: Send a request to program coordinator Sara Keeney at ABQ@npsnm.org.
