California Desert Plants: Amazing Beauty in a Harsh Environment (202-229)

Thu, Feb 7, 7:30pm

The California desert has much more than just cactus! Steve Hartman, veteran leader of many CNPS desert field trips over the past two decades, will take you on a powerpoint tour of the Sonoran and Mojave deserts. Learn about the many plant communities and the key plant species that inhabit these hot arid regions. Get a visual treat with colorful images of spectacular spring and fall wildflower displays. Find out about some of the projects that CNPS has undertaken in helping survey and analyze rare desert flora. Steve will discuss some important threats to desert ecosystems such as fire and the invasion by non-native plants.
