Note the meeting location:

Sky Islands Public High School, 6000 E. 14th Street, Tucson, AZ 85711

Big Bend National Park is an incredible showcase of the Chihuahuan Desert. If one heads to the west, you run into Big Bend Ranch State Park, an equally incredible park that offers a more "rough it" style of park. Almost no one visits this park in comparison to the national park but it is home to some unique geography and an endemic cactus, Echinocereus viridiflorus var. canus.

Rob has been a desert rat and cactus enthusiast for over 25 years and with his first visit to Big Bend Ranch State Park in 2010 he was hooked and has visited the park 6 times (so far!). The geography and more importantly the cacti of the park will be presented to show just what a special place this really is.

Welcome to a New Year! Please come and enjoy a special program presented by Rob and really enjoy an excellent evening with friends, fun, books, raffle plants, free plants and lots of really great refreshments.
