This two-day workshop will be held at the ABQ BioPark on May 19 and at Mesa Garden in Belen, NM, on May 20.
Cacti are bizarre succulent-stemmed plants that have captured the hearts of southwestern botanists and fascinated plant collectors worldwide.
New Mexico has a diverse cactus flora and many are keystone species in our arid ecosystems. This workshop, led by Dave Ferguson Botanic Garden Associate Curator and Steve Brack of Mesa Garden, will cover basic cactus morphology and terminology, genus identification of New Mexico cacti, common and rare cacti, followed by a tour of the cacti in the Botanic Garden and a field trip to the foothills of the Sandia Mountains.
The second half day is a trip to Mesa Garden in Belen for a private tour of a world-class collection of cacti and a demonstration on how to grow your own cacti from seed.
