Botanical Walking Tour at Amerind with Dr. Lyn Loveless
Saturday, September 10, 2022, 8:30 am
This two-hour walk, some of it off the road and trail, will give us a glimpse of some of the botanical wonders that the Amerind holds. Depending on how much rain we have had, we should see some lovely patches of flowers and will get a sense of how many native species actually can be found in just a short ramble. Participants should be prepared to walk one-two miles over uneven ground at a moderate pace. Please wear long pants to protect your legs from prickly plants, sturdy walking shoes or light hiking boots, and be prepared with water, snacks, sunscreen, and a hat. Walking sticks are welcome if you want a little extra stability.
Lyn is an ecologist and botanist who has been working at Amerind for over a decade studying floral biology and genetics of Coral Bean, a hummingbird-pollinated shrub. She is never happier than when she’s out in the field, seeking out new plant finds. Before her retirement and relocation to Tucson, she was a Professor of Biology at The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. She has also done a great deal of research in the tropics, especially in Brazil and Panama.
The price is $20 per person. The tour will be limited to 20 guests, with 8 spaces available to Amerind members at no cost. Space is limited on a first-come-first-served basis for h paid and free slots. Amerind members must call Annie Larkin at 520-686-1336 to reserve their free space.
