"Wonderful World of Plants!" - Cave Creek Regional Park
Cave Creek Regional Park
***SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER, JOE FORD*** This program looks at the major plant families and describes characteristics of their flowers: unusual and important information about some major species. The 6 largest families,(sunflowers, orchids, legumes, grasses, mustards and roses) are highlighted. A discussion of deserts in America and especially the Sonoran Desert are emphasized. Familiar members of the Cactus Family, including the saguaro, prickly pear, & cholla are included in the information along with other plants that use several survival strategies to thrive in desert ecosystems. This is a power point presentation. ***Joe is a native of Missouri. He holds several degrees in education and a Masters Degree in Natural Science from the University of Oklahoma.
