BULLHEAD CITY — The Bullhead City area Master Gardeners will present a program on citrus trees at Thursday’s meeting at the Bullhead City branch of the Mohave County Library.

The presentation, free to the public, will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at the library, 1170 Hancock Road. It is part of the group’s monthly series on a variety of horticulture topics presented the third Thursday of each month.
