Nature Walk: Xeric Adaptations by Plants

Learn how plants adapt to very low water conditions to survive and thrive.  The walk is led by Mary Irish, who worked for 11 years at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona and authored several books.  Meet in the PHP UEC classroom for a presentation before the walk.

This Nature Walk is jointly sponsored by the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, the Alamo Area Master Naturalists, the Sierra Club and the San Antonio Chapter of the Native Plant Society. 

The walks follow the same trails through the park each month, but change the focus of the walk. Walkers learn from experts and see the changing beauty of the natural area through the seasons. Minors are welcomed when accompanied by an adult parent or guardian.  Dogs are allowed if leashed and socialized.  The trail is flat, with a natural surface.  These 1.5 mile walks are slow-paced.  The walking portion of the program lasts about two hours. 

Walkers are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, to bring water and sun protection, and to dress appropriately for the weather.

Registration is not required.  A donation to the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy of $3 per individual or $5 per family is suggested.

Call the PHP Conservancy office for more information: 210-226-8339.
