Plants of Red Rock Canyon

August 25, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Amber Shanklin will be at Red Rocks to discuss the ecology of the area with an emphasis on the local vegetation. Learn about the region’s native and non-native plant species and what impacts they have in our open spaces. There will be a short discussion followed by a walk through the canyon identifying plants.

Amber is the Pikes Peak Region Conservation Director at Palmer Land Trust where she works to conserve public and private lands for future generations. She has a master’s degree in ecology from Colorado State University and loves discussing ecology, disturbance, fire, and restoration with anyone who is interested!
