The Las Placitas Association is pleased to announce this month’s native plant hike led by Michael Crowfoot. On April 22nd Michael invites you join him to see what the open space looks like as the warm weather has already forced many flowers to bloom. His March hike found Fuzzy asters and Fendler’s bladderpod.
The hike will start at 9:00 and about last two hours. He will try to identify every plant species seen and some of their stories will be shared with a view to understanding the environmental history of this wonderful park. There will be time to take photographs and for a short discussion time. Wear a good hat, rugged shoes, bring plenty of liquids and be prepared for a relatively easy hike with a bunch of nature lovers. Meet at 8:45. Go through the east gate of the Open Space off the BLM access in the Toad Road, Mustang Mesa area to meet Michael at the Open Space gate.
Michael is well known in Placitas for his knowledge of our natural environment. If you don’t know Michael, get better acquainted by listening to this interview on KUPR.org.
