Discover the early blooming wildflowers of the Foothills

May 6 @ 8:00 am 12:00 pm



Explore the early season beauty of this area with Ridgway writer Mary Menz and Montrose photographer Jim Pisarowicz. They’ll share with participants their extensive plant knowledge, photography tips, and enthusiasm for this beautiful area.

Participants will move between sites by car with short spurts of walking after meeting at a centrally-located place to carpool (familiar pods in vehicles or caravan in our own vehicles).

Bring cameras and nature journals to satisfy your creative outlets, too. Jim will offer photography tips on the fly and you’ll learn about the plants and animals that call this place home. Different elevations and habitats provide opportunities to view a wide variety of Colorado’s native plants and wildflowers.

Registration includes a copy of their book Common Wildflowers of the San Juan Mountains (2019). More information will be provided one week prior to the event
