Playa Life: Journey to Inner Space

We are to take a journey through the surprising life forms that have developed from the Black Rock, Toulon, and 4-Mile playas during the summers of 2021 and 2022. The Great Playa Designer has outdone itself with some of these new features. This continuing playa project will dispel the idea that playas are lifeless, boring, meaningless landscapes. They are full of life, both flora and fauna.

April speaker: Bob Goodman
