Walk and Talk: Natural History of the Rio de Flag with Gwendolyn Waring and Richard Herefore
Thursday, July 7thth, 2022 @ 5:30 PM
It’s time to dig those hiking boots out of the back of the closet and join us for our July Members Meeting. Joining us will be two esteemed local experts on the Rio de Flag. Ecologist, artist and writer, Gwendolyn Waring, will join to discuss the natural history of the Rio de Flag riparian areas with a focus on plants and the human history of the area. Richard Herefore, USGS scientist emeritus, will also be joining to discuss the natural history of the river itself including the history and future potential of flooding.
We will meet at the parking area adjacent to the Museum of Northern Arizona. The walk will be 1-2 miles round trip on the trail along the river.
The Earth Day event was attended by hundreds of people, and our table (featuring the Stream
Stewards program) was well attended. Sara, Kathy, Clarice, and Paul staffed our table. About 10
people signed up to be members of the Friends.
