McKinnon to Speak on Red Brome Physiology and Management

A plant ecologist with a background in research will reveal why the aggressive non-native grass Red Brome is a significant threat to Southern California in a talk to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park® Botany Society on February 9 in Borrego Springs.

Evan MacKinnon, an environmental scientist with Colorado Desert District that includes Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, joined the park staff last May and plans to use his research experience as a weapon against such threats. His talk is about Red Brome Physiology and Management.

The presentation starts at 10 a.m. at the State Park Visitor Center at 200 Palm Canyon Drive in Borrego Springs. The talk is open to the public at no charge.
