NATURAL HISTORY LECTURES:


2020 Wupatki Basin Natural History presentation, Pioneer Museum, Flagstaff AZ.  I approached my Wupatki artist-in residence experience as an artist and a naturalist.  It was so exciting to learn more about this wonderful place.  20 March, 2020, Friday, 7pm.  I also have a Nature Notes in the works.  It was incredible to spend nearly two weeks in this open, quiet, beautiful place.


2020 Art classes/plein air...  I will be having 4 art classes in summer, 2020, in different locations around Flag.  I will teach in pastels, as they represent such a wonderful, unique, and at the end of the day, forgiving medium.  These are typically a long afternoon, capturing late day light especially.  Contact me if interested: gwenwaring@hotmail.com

I produce a column called Nature Notes for the local paper, The Arizona Daily Sun about each month.  In it I describe some of the natural history of our area.

Natural History of the Wupatki Basin, Pioneer Museum lecture, 20 March, 2020, Friday, 7pm.  I approached my artist-in-residence program as a naturalist as well as an artist, and look forward to sharing what I learned about this beautiful landscape.


LANDSCAPE DESIGN:

With my knowledge of native plants and how they behave in the garden, I design perennial gardens and landscapes that are beautiful, water conserving, low-maintenance, and provide a great connection with the natural world around us.     


I also walk people's property with them, showing them what to get rid of, as in nonnative stuff and even highly invasive native species, and how to take care of the rest.  Fun times...
