“Nevada’s Native Plants Are So Much More Diverse & Incredible Than Most Nevadans Know.”

November 5, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This is the second program in the Wetlands Park Friends Wetlands Wednesdays Quarterly Lecture Series. Learn more than you thought you’d ever know about the incredible variety of useful and interesting native plants in Nevada from naturalist Dr. Don Deever.

Dr. Don Deever is an Assistant Professor and Extension Educator, Lincoln County for the University of Nevada, Reno. The former National Geographic adventurer & current Extension Educator,

Deever, doesn’t just talk about the amazing edible and medicinal qualities of wild plants. Wherever he lives, he lives the life of a modern-day beachcomber. In the mid-80’s, Dr. Deever sold everything he owned, quit a good paying job, and moved to a small island in the Fiji group, where he lived the existence of Robinson Crusoe on a small desert isle. As in love with the plants of Nevada as he is with the plants of the South Seas.

This program is open to Wetlands Park Friends Members. For more information or to apply for membership, please contact Suzann Pruitt at friends@wetlandsparkfriends.org.
