Lee Hughes will speak on "When Will the Wildflowers Bloom?".
    This is one of the most frequently asked questions about desert wildflowers. Unfortunately, it is

    temperature and elevation sets the stage for the precise location of the best springtime blooms.
    Lee is a former BLM ecologist and botanist who just can't leave the plants alone. Come hear
    what he has to say about the spring flowers, as well as edible plants.
