Gila Native Plant Society @ WNMU Harlan Hall

Gila Native Plant Society meeting, 7:00 pm on the second floor, Room 219, of WNMU’s Harlan Hall,  on the corner of 12th and Alabama Streets. The meeting will feature a presentation by Nathan Newcomer entitled “Protecting Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers in the Gila National Forest”. The Gila National Forest is currently undergoing a plan revision, something that hasn’t happened in 30 years. As a part of the plan revision, the Forest Service is required to look at recommending areas for Wilderness and Wild & Scenic River designation. For the past four years, Nathan and a team of dedicated volunteers have been out on the ground conducting inventories of these lands and waters that they believe qualify for protection. Come learn about some of the wildest places left in the Gila, and ways that you can get involved. The meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments following the program.
