Wildflowers of the Gunnison Gorge Recreation Area
May 5 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
It’s still too early for many of the annual wildflowers, so we’ll explore the early season beauty of the Gunnison Gorge Recreation Area, north of Montrose. Ridgway writer and Native Plant Master® Mary Menz and Montrose photographer Jim Pisarowicz will share 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.
Different elevations and habitats provide opportunities to view a wide variety of Colorado’s native plants and wildflowers. Register for one guided experience or all! Maximum of 12 participants.
Ridgway writer Mary Menz and Montrose photographer Jim Pisarowicz will share their extensive plant knowledge and excitement for the area with you. Registration includes a copy of their book Common Wildflowers of the San Juan Mountains (second printing 2022) and surprize items, too! More information will be provided a few days prior to the event.
