At the meeting of the Gila Native Plant Society on September 8, 2017, botanist Patrice Mutchnick will present a talk entitled "Important Plant Areas of the Gila, a Virtual and Photographic Tour". Through photos and interactive maps, she will explain the concept of Important Plant Areas as defined by the 2017 state-wide Rare Plant Conservation Strategy.
