The Center For The Arts Presents In Conversation with Shane Hanofee: Wildflower Walk & Identification
Sunday, April 25, 2021
4:00 pst (Online via Zoom)
Nevada County is home to nearly 2000 species of native plants and have evolved to fill every possible ecological niche from hot, dry oak savannahs to damp alpine meadows. These plants are the basis for the existence of all other wildlife, forming the foundation that the entire food chain relies upon. Come learn about some of the plants that can be found in your backyard or along your favorite hike, how to identify them, and how they fit into the grand tapestry of life.
