Getting to Know Your Bioregion

Presentation and Talk by Dena Greenwood

We are fortunate to live in one of the country’s most unique and beautiful areas.  Many of us were drawn here by the mild climate, open spaces, spectacular mountain, canyon and desert landscapes, and the lure of ancient cultures. Miraculously this arid land is woven together
by water; rivers, creeks and hidden springs that support a great diversity of plants, birds, animals and people.

Dena Greenwood, naturalist and educator will help us understand this magnificent region we call home. The place where the great Colorado Plateau meets the Sonoran Desert.

This presentation will be especially informative for new residents who want to learn about the land in which they have chosen to live.

When:  Saturday, March 11, 2017 – 1:00-2:30pm
Place:  Cottonwood Room, Cottonwood Recreation Center
