Madrean Plants – Hike with Mike
August 17, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Take a beautiful drive up Carr Canyon Road to Carr House and join Mike Foster, Carr House host, to learn more about the plants of the Huachuca Mountains. Mike’s presentation will start with a short video about many of the plant species in the Madrean Evergreen Woodlands surrounding Carr House. You’ll learn about the “sky islands” of the Huachuca Mountains and how plants here more closely resemble those of the Sierra Madre Mountains to the south rather than those of the Rocky Mountains to the north.
Following the video, Mike will lead a short walk around Carr House so we’ll have the chance to identify the plants introduced in the video. There may be opportunities to see other inhabitants of Carr Canyon as well, such as insects, lizards, birds and mammals. Bring your camera! You’ll want to snap a few photos to help you remember the flora and fauna you’ve seen.
Space is limited. Plan to arrive early.
Carr House is located at 1011 E. Carr Canyon Road, 2.1 miles from the intersection of Highway 92 at the Mesquite Tree Restaurant.
