April Program
Mexico - Visiting Old Friends and Making New Ones
presented by Kelly Griffin

"This past year in addition to going to other places in the world, I have made three trips to Mexico with at least two more planned. This talk will be about those excursions.

It is new so a little unpolished but that’s half the fun, right? I traveled the length of Baja and to several of the islands but that is just a part of the talk. I also traveled to Sonora, Mexico and jumped over to the state of Nuevo Leon to see the delights in the Lampozos Mountains.

It is an adventure of people and plants....mostly plants! Expect to see Agaves, Dudleyas, Echeverias, Cactus and even a few Cycads!"
Kelly Griffin holds a degree in Applied Physics from UCSD, but his love for plants has led him to such positions as curator of Xerophytes at Rancho Soledad Nurseries and currently as Plant Research and Developer at Altman’s Plants.
