Local expert to lead monthly wildflower walks

Program > Participants will meet once a month at PEEC and carpool to the trailhead

Starting this month, PEEC’s Jemez Mountain Herbarium curator, Chick Keller, will begin leading monthly Wildflower Walks.
These will be easy walks to identify some of the wildflower found in and around Los Alamos. Each month Keller will pick a different trail, depending on what is blooming at the time.
The walks are free and there is no advance registration required.
The Wildflower Walks will take place over the next several months on Fridays, with the next one scheduled for June 27. Other walks are scheduled for July 18 and Aug. 15.
Participants will receive a plant list and that, along with instruction from Keller, will help them learn how to identify wildflowers currently blooming in Los Alamos.
The group will meet at 5:15 p.m. each month at PEEC and carpool to the trailhead. The events are free and no registration is required.
