'Plants of Red Rock Canyon' Talk and Walk July 31; reservations necessary

       “Plants of Red Rock Canyon” is the title of the next Talk and Walk at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, Monday, July 31.
       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.
       Advance reservations are necessary at friends@redrockcanyonopenspace.org or by calling David Valier at 685-4792.
