FUTURE “WINDOW ON NATURE” PROGRAMS & EVENTS
DATE: January 25, 2018. 7:00 PM (4th Thursday)
PROGRAM: “The White Mountains of Eastern Arizona” POSTER
SPEAKER: David Moll, PAS member, “Wingtips” Editor, Photographer, and Naturalist
COMMENTS: I have visited the White Mountains of eastern Arizona each year since 1999. I have car-camped, stayed at accommodations, and backpacked.
With ample precipitation, lush forests, picturesque meadows, sparkling streams, and limited development, this area stands in stark contrast to the rest of Arizona. It’s also home to abundant and diverse wildlife.
The White Mountains of eastern Arizona still hold feelings of magic, vitality, and most certainly of an earlier age. One could stand at the edge of a meadow in the afternoon and be transported to a time fifty years ago, a hundred years ago, ten-thousand years ago.
DATE: February 22, 2018, 7:00 PM (4th Thursday)
