Mark Muradian - Anza-Borrego Desert

We have had many fine travelogues to Mexico, South America, Madagascar, numerous parts of Africa and our Southwest, so this time we are staying home in California. Mark Muradian, whose grandfather started farming in the San Joaquin Valley in 1915, still carries on the family tradition in the same general area. He has been an avid cultivator of cacti and succulents for nearly 20 years. Last year, we were astounded by his program on his desert garden.

In this program, Mark takes us on a pictorial journey to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park located about 90 miles northeast of San Diego. Encompassing over 600,000 acres of spectacular geological scenery as well as a huge array of indigenous plants.




Members with last names starting with M through Z should bring a snack for the November meeting.



REMINDER!

We will be voting for new officers at the November Meeting.
