The Plateau Chapter encompasses the west-central and northwest area of Colorado: from Grand Junction to Montrose to Gunnison to Glenwood Springs to Craig.  This broad geographic area means we have amazing localities for field trips from the sandstone canyons near Gateway to the high alpine of the San Juan Mountains. Meetings are typically held in Grand Junction and are combined with “mini-workshops” to build member’s botanical knowledge. These have included investigations of the diverse sunflower family, a detailed look at grass anatomy, and introductions to botanical terms to help in plant identification.  Wherever you are in Western Colorado, come join us for meetings and field trips.

Susan Carter, Jim Pisarowicz and David Varner are the Operating Committee of the Plateau Chapter. Please contact one of them for more information.
