Chasing Centuries at the Cactus and Succulent Society of Southern Nevada

October 3 @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm

Join author Ron Parker as he explores the depth and duration of human/agave co-evolution across the desert southwest, and discovers unusual agaves apparently associated with archaeological sites long since abandoned by residents of extinct ancient cultures. These agaves appear to be anthropogenic cultivars; living archaeological relics developed and planted by indigenous pre-Columbian Native Americans, and many are still growing exactly where they were planted hundreds of years ago.
