Meet the Natives - Lecture with Dan Johnson

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective

View native plants of the southern Rocky Mountains through Dan Johnson’s creative curatorial eye both in wild habitats and in garden settings.

Dan’s much-anticipated 2012 expansion of M. Walter Pesman’s 1942 Meet the Natives boasts not only additional plants, but also quick reference tables and gardening tips. Best of all, new color photos make identification of plants and wildflowers on Colorado’s scenic trails and byways easier than ever.

In this talk some rare and threatened species are noted, as well as commonly encountered non-natives. Dan’s commentary bridges the gap between trail and garden, focusing on which natives are well-suited for garden spaces, and which are best enjoyed in their wild habitats.

Book signing will follow presentation
