"A Garden of Eden in Our Own Backyard"
Sycamore Canyon; Santa Cruz County, Arizona
Sycamore Canyon is one of the most diverse canyons in Arizona, and it's right here in our own backyard! Join Cory Martin in viewing some of the 640 species of plants, geology and wildlife that occur in this four mile long canyon on the Arizona/Mexico border. This is the fourth installment in the "cool places to see within a days drive from Tucson" series meant to inspire appreciation for our local hot spots of vegetation.
Cory got his start in the plant community at Bach's Cactus Nursery twelve years ago. After four years in wholesale and retail, Cory moved on to The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. Joining the Botany Department at the ASDM as Horticulturist, he spent seven years caring for many different exhibits including but not limited to the Boojums and the Cactus Garden. Cory has spent the past year and a half as Horticulture Manager for Miraval Resort and Spa managing a crew of six and thirty acres of maintained property. Cory also likes to search out plants in habitat in his free time.
We want to welcome Cory as our October guest speaker. Don't miss this special journey to a great location along the border of Arizona and Mexico.
