A Natural History of the Santa Catalinas
Saturday | March 30 | 10 a.m. | Ed. Center #1 | Registration Required
The Catalinas dominate the view from the Tucson valley — glowing purple at sunset, dark and brooding under storm clouds, bright green with the flush of vegetation after monsoon or radiant white with a coating of snow. A center of scientific study for decades, this range has sustained us for thousands of years, the bounty of its slopes feeding early residents of the valley and its watershed replenishing valley aquifers. Each year, tourists and valley residents stream up a highway carved onto its flanks, but how many of us really recognize what we pass along the way and understand what these mountains mean to all of us. The husband-wife team of Richard C. Brusca (Invertebrate Zoologist and Tohono Chul board member) and Wendy Moore (UofA Assistant Professor/Entomology) now bring the natural history of the Catalinas within reach with the publication of A Natural History of the Santa Catalina Mountains, with an Introduction to the Madrean Sky Islands. Meet the authors and learn about the geologic and biotic history of the range, discover the place of the Catalinas in the greater context of the Madrean Sky Island Region and get tips on ten recommended stops along the highway. Whether a curious traveler or a serious student, you’ll look at our mountains with new eyes. Free for members | $8 for the general public
