I am so glad I signed up for this three-day event held in town. For $15 I am attending lectures and slide shows by local/regional scientists, photographers and naturalists on the flora and fauna of this county.
And what a biologically diverse county we live in. From a hummingbird region to desert wildlife and skyislands with gorgeous hiking trails, Cochise County has it all and everyone who lectured has been passionate about birding, reptiles, butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies, native gardens, conservation, raptors, bats and local history. I haven't been bored yet during any of the lectures and during breaks get to talk to some of the locals in attendance.
