Edith J Carrier Arboretum Arbor - Wildflowers of Spain

Brown Bag Lunch Lecture
Wildflowers of Spain
Speaker, Rae Lynn Kasdan

The Picos de Europa is a mountainous region on the north coast of Spain, and it's also the name of a national park that straddles three provinces. It is part of "green Spain" as the geography is influenced by the Atlantic and the climate is cool and moist. The scenery is spectacular and dominated by mountains ranging from 500- 8700 feet. The Picos is considered by some to be one of the last truly wild places in Europe and is an area of great biodiversity.

Traveler Rae Lynn Kasdan will share her experience of exploring this incredible region over the course of an 8-day excursion, showcasing the blooming wildflowers found there.

Bring your lunch and join us in the Frances Plecker Education Center! Free event.
