Starting at 5:30 p.m., Monday, April 24, Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Jemez Mountain Herbarium Curator Chick Keller will lead the first monthly Wildflower Walk of the season. These outings will be easy walks to identify some of the wildflower beauties found in and around Los Alamos.
Each month Keller will pick a different trail, depending on what is blooming at the time. The walks are free and there is no advance registration required.
The Wildflower Walks are one Monday a month for the season. The next two walks are April 24 and May 22. Participants will receive a plant list and that, along with instruction from Keller, will help them learn how to identify wildflowers blooming in Los Alamos.
The group meets at 5:30 p.m. at the Los Alamos Nature Center, at 2600 Canyon Road, to carpool to the trailhead.
