From a distance. California poppy and Arizona poppy can easily be confused. Petal color and habitat are similar. However, a closer look reveals the differences.

The seeds can remain fertile in the desert for at least 3 years until the monsoons signal it’s time to sprout.

Open House : The amazing flora of the AZNPS-BLM Waterman Restoration Site

Saturday September 18
Limit : all fully vaccinated persons are welcome to attend
Meet at 730 at the Waterman site

The prodigious July-August rains have triggered full and abundant growth of native plants at the restoration site which was once a scarred, eroded hillside known as “the mother of all buffelgrass patches” !

We will see a dazzling array of native species thriving in the hundreds of hundreds of water harvest catchments that have been installed by volunteers over the past 10 years. Trailing Four o’clocks, Globe Mallows and Desert Hibiscus will be in bloom. Native grasses will be heading out and flourishing. Desert woody species including Foothill Palo Verde, Ironwoods, White thorn Acacia, Ocotillo, Fairy Dusters and wolfberries will be fully leafed out and growing like gangbusters. Of course we will have an opportunity to see the endangered Nichols Turkshead barrel cactus.

This will be a delightful learning experience for all of us.

You are invited to stay and enjoy the site for as long as you like.

Directions : Get on Avra Valley Road from I-10. Drive exactly 19 miles west of I-10, slow down and turn left at the Pioneer sign on the mailbox.
Drive straight on a paved road and bearing left for about a mile until you reach the demonstration garden with white plant ID signs on your left..

The Tucson Chapter will hold its September chapter meeting on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Our presentation is entitled "A Starving Man Does Not Sniff His Food: Plants Used as Famine Foods," presented by Paul E. Minnis. The use of plants during food shortages, including famines, has saved millions of lives. Yet there has been very little systematic research about how these plants are used. A cross-cultural study of the use of famine foods by many communities, from hunter-gathers of southern Africa to the Siege of Leningrad and including the North American Southwest, documents how these plants are used. Knowledge of famine foods may well have value in helping humanity feed itself in the future.

Our speaker, Dr. Paul E Minnis, is a professor emeritus of Anthropology from the University of Oklahoma and a Visiting Scientist in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona. He conducts research on the prehispanic ethnobotany and archaeology of the northwest Mexico and the U.S. Southwest. He is the author or editor of 14 books and numerous articles.

We will start the meeting at 6:45 pm on Zoom to give us time for some greetings and social interactions. To receive an email with the Zoom link, send a request to [email protected]

AZNPS Talk: Kate Watters - Building Pollinator Gardens

08/08/2021

ANNOUNCEMENT: Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic we held monthly programs on the third Friday of each month from September through May at 5:00 PM in the Cochise County Community Development Office conference room, 4001 Foothills Dr. (corner of Highway 92 and E. Foothills Drive), Sierra Vista. With the start of the pandemic we cancelled all in-person meetings but resumed them on September 18, 2020 via Zoom Conferencing. Currently it does not appear that we will be able to meet in our previous meeting room for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, meeting remotely remains a viable option; however, we are exploring the possibility of holding meetings at different times and frequencies than in the pre-pandemic times. Consequently, we are not announcing any new meetings at this time. Members may learn of upcoming meetings, field trips, and other activities from the Chapter Facebook website. Also, members will be informed of all future activities in advance via the Chapter email roster. Please contact Chapter President Douglas Ripley for any questions you may have regarding future activities .
