Join the Prescott Chapter of the Arizona Native Plant Society for a presentation by Max Licher on the survey of the floras of Sedona and the Verde Valley. Max will be discussing his floristic work on Sedona/Oak Creek Canyon, the Verde Valley Botanical Area, and the Tent Rocks/Cottonwood Basin PAPAZ area. He will be highlighting various plants in each area and will also take a few detours to discuss his Cyperaceae/Juncaceae work and distilling conifer essential oils (both tied into the greater floristic area).

By attending this event and learning about the Floras of Sedona and the Verde Valley, you will enrich your knowledge and support the Prescott Chapter of the Arizona Native Plant Society. Your presence and support are invaluable to us, and we look forward to your participation!

Max Licher is an architect who has lived in Sedona for 42 years. Max also serves as an Associate Curator at the Deaver Herbarium at NAU, where he is currently working in collaboration with Glenn Rink on revisions of the Cyperaceae and Juncaceae plant families for Arizona and New Mexico. He began his Arizona botanical efforts with an annotated checklist of the plants of Oak Creek Canyon and the Sedona/Red Rocks area. In addition, Max is one of the coordinating botanists for the Plant Atlas of Arizona Project (PAPAZ), and has helped voucher plant collections for The Verde Valley Botanical Area, Cottonwood Basin Fumaroles Geologic and Botanical Special Area (Tent Rocks), Red Rock State Park, and Hart Prairie projects. He is an avid photographer, and has contributed many images to the Southwest Environmental Information Network, or SEINet, database.
