Field Trips


The Gila Native Plant Society conducts field trips from April through September on the third Sunday of every month. Meet at the south parking lot of the Fine Arts Center Theatre on the WNMU campus a little before 8:00 am for carpooling.

Upcoming field trips:

Sunday, July 15: The field trip will be to Meadow Creek (instead of Sheep Corral)  in the Pinos Altos Range – road likely to be less treacherous. We’ll see what plants the rains may have inspired to pop out.

Sunday, August 19: Field trip to Fort Bayard Preserve

Sunday, September 16: Field trip to Ira Canyon in the Burro Mountains

And don’t forget the 26 field trips to choose from if you sign up for the Annual Conference of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico, hosted here in Silver City, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 7-9, 2018. Check out
