NMMS Upcoming Meetings & Events
Sunday, November 19 • 2:00-4:00 pm • Albuquerque Garden Center
Note: This meeting had initially been scheduled for Nov 12, but a conflict at the AGC had us postpone a week.
Program: Fungi and the Future of Bosque Cottonwood
Our speaker at the November meeting, Rich Wagner, has worked with the Bosque Environmental Monitoring Program (BEMP) for several years. Rich grew up exploring nature from California to Virginia but has called New Mexico and its amazing wild places home for decades. A passion for protecting these places led him back to college, and he became an avid BEMPer while earning his degree in Conservation Biology from the University of New Mexico.Rich is thrilled to be part of a team working to protect the bosque through community science and education of the next generation of environmental stewards. He believes that building a personal connection with nature is the best way to protect it and spends his free time hiking, biking, running and camping. He also loves cooking and the community that sharing food creates.
