Many of you remember Larry Vickerman from a few years ago when he was the County Director and Horticulture Agent for El Paso County. Since then he’s done an terrific job overseeing the Chatfield nature preserve of Denver Botanic Gardens. So he knows a thing or two about native plants and bio-diversity. We are pleased to bring him back to town with the question, “What is bio-diversity and why should we worry about it?”

Tour Before the Talk
If you’d like to learn more about the plants and landscape design at the Penrose House grounds, be sure to come at 9:00 a.m. for a walking tour with Leslie Thomas of Thomas and Thomas Planning, Urban Design, & Landscape Architecture.
