Spring and summer are wonderful times to enjoy the abundant wildflowers.
Sometimes however, the weather does not cooperate, or a wildflower blooms at a time or location that is not convenient for viewing. But this shouldn’t stop local residents from knowing local wildflowers!
The Jemez Mountain Herbarium houses 950 species of local plants. Its curator, Chick Keller, is offering to take interested visitors on a virtual wildflower walk using specimens from this collection, allowing visitors to take a field trip from the convenience of the Nature Center.
The first indoor wildflower “walk” will introduce participants to the most accessible wildflowers in our area. This program is 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 7. It is free and no registration is required. Plant lists will be available so participants may keep track of what plants they have seen.
