As part of the ongoing efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, the May monthly meeting has been cancelled, as have all OFNC activities in the month of May.

We look forward to scheduling Sophie’s talk at a future date once it is safe and practicable to hold meetings again.

The Mojave, Sonora and Chihuahua deserts are among the most unique and fascinating environments in North America. Although they may have a reputation for being harsh and unforgiving, these ecosystems are full of life. Come discover the highly-specialized flora and fauna of the American southwest! This presentation will touch on the behaviour, physiology and etymology of everything living in the desert.
