HANGING GARDENS OF ZION

June 3 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$60

As their name implies, hanging gardens are lush assemblages of plants found in association with small seeps or springs and usually located in shady cliff recesses well above ground level. Hanging gardens contain a distinctive flora of ferns, orchids, colorful monkeyflowers and primroses, and other wetland plants that are not typically associated with desert climates. These unique ecological systems are rare in the southwest but relatively frequent at several sites within Zion Canyon in Zion National Park.  We will take folks to explore several of the hanging gardens of Zion, focusing on the natural history of the plant species and their adaptations to desert life. Limited to 10 participants.

FEE: $60

MINIMUM ENROLLMENT: 2 by Tues, May 30 @ noon or class will cancel. If you’re reading this past the minimum enrollment date it means the class is a go and you can still sign up by calling 435 772 3264.
