“Assessment of Vascular Plant Biodiversity in the HD Mountains” by Emma Cooley will be presented from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan 25. 

Cooley, a recent Fort Lewis College graduate, will walk us through her work documenting the plants of the HD Mountains in southwestern Colorado. 

This presentation will be preceded by a short meeting of the Southwest Chapter of the Colorado Native Plant Society. A question-and-answer session will immediately follow the presentation.

This presentation will be presented only in virtual format on Zoom. In the future, the Southwest Chapter hopes to hold our lecture series in a hybrid format, with option to attend in-person at Fort Lewis College or on Zoom. We will continue to assess accordingly and follow health department guidelines.
