The speaker, starting at 5:30 p.m., will be Amber Shanklin, Pikes Peak region conservation director for the Palmer Land Trust, a land conservation nonprofit.
Talk and Walk is a series presented by the Friends of Red Rock Canyon, a volunteer organization that helps care for the Colorado Springs-owned open space south of Highway 24.
Shanklin's talk will focus on local vegetation, a press release states. “Learn about the region's native and non-native plant species and what impacts they have in our open spaces.”
After her presentation, she will lead a walk through the canyon, identifying plants, the release adds.
