Poppies and lupines and chicory, oh my! The winter rains we have been enjoying have also been a blessing for our desert wildflowers, and it is looking like we will have a good turnout this spring. For those of you interested in traveling where the wildflowers are, and getting expert assistance with flower identification from our resident wildflower guru, Lynn Hassler, we are offering a choice of two dates this spring — February 26 OR March 5. Both ed-ventures will take us by mini-bus all the way to Organ Pipe National Monument, checking for flowers along the way as we drive across the Tohono O’odham Reservation. We expect a wide variety from tiny belly flowers, like pygmy daisy, to yardstick tall prickly poppies. If we are really lucky, there might even be some Ajo lilies! Cost includes transportation, picnic lunch and guide services.
