CoNPS Boulder Chapter Meeting

From Tundra Pools to Boulder Fields: Habitats and Plants of Summit Lake Park, Mount Evans
Thursday, February 14, 2013; 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location:  REI Boulder Community Room
Presenter:  Mo Ewing, Colorado Native Plant Society

Summit Lake Park on Mount Evans, designated as a National Natural History Landmark, is one of the “Crown Jewels” of Colorado.  Elevation, soils, slope, moisture and aspect create beautiful collections of plants all struggling to survive the harsh conditions of the high alpine.  Come for a photographic tour of this wonderful place with its fascinating ecosystems and learn how its beautiful plants choose the habitats to live in and what tricks they use to survive.

Mo Ewing is a retired conservation biologist who has studied everything from noxious weeds in the White Mountains of New Hampshire to rare and endangered plants on the shale barrens of northwestern Colorado.  He currently volunteers at the Research Department at the Denver Botanic Gardens, serves as Conservation Chair and Treasurer of the Colorado Native Plant Society, and is a Rare Plant Monitoring Steward for the Colorado Natural Areas Program.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
