Tim Hankins, PhD presents a photographic collection of wildflowers, starting at low elevations near the Rio Grande and climbing to the summits of the Magdalena Mountains.


For 30 years, Tim Hankins, PhD, has been traversing Socorro County's varied terrain.

And since retiring from New Mexico Tech as a professor of physics, Hankins is dedicating even more time and energy to photographing the wildflowers of Socorro County.

Although the geographic center of our great state is not within Socorro County, but in Torrance County, its northeast neighbor, it really does feel like the center of New Mexico, especially when driving I-25, what with the Rio Grande bisecting it and Socorro at its very center.

And like so many of them do, New Mexico's second largest county also has a large elevation range. From Bosque del Apache NWR to South Baldy in the Magdalena Mtns and West Blue Mountain in the San Mateo Mtns, there is some 6000 feet of elevation change.

Tim will present "Wildflowers of Socorro County," a photographic collection of wildflowers from a variety of habitats, starting at the lowest elevations near the Rio Grande and climbing to the summits of the Magdalena Mountains.

Some of these species are plenty abundant, while others have only been seen once in his three decades of roaming.
