The Botany Certification Course wrapped up on Monday, March 30th with a field trip to Plum Canyon. Larry Hendrickson, Botanist for the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park®, led the group and a tour of the popular Plum Canyon. While most of the flowering annuals were gone, a few late bloomers were seen, probable germination as a result of the late rains in the area.
