Work Shop – Identifying Native Plants – March 11

Identifying Native Plants

How do we learn the names of all those wildflowers growing in our yards and alongside the road? Anyone can do it; they just have to know what to look for and how to look for it. If you’re tired of calling everything a daisy or a bluebell or a popcorn flower, this workshop will not only help you get to the right names, it will also give you a new appreciation for how many different species of plants we actually have here. Bring in some of your favorite weeds. Tools and materials provided at the workshop. Join Mark Wheeler at the Hi-Desert Nature Museum for a hands-on introduction to native wildflower identification.

Wednesday, March 11, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Price: $5 (free for museum members)
