2014 Introductory Plant Walks

Join our fun, informal walks and get familiar with plants native to Whatcom County. Sponsored by the Koma Kulshan Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society, these introductory plant identification walks feature an easy pace and will each last a couple of hours. The walks will focus on a variety of habitats, with your expert guide introducing you to common trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants native to our area. Tidbits on ethnobotany, wildlife use, gardening with natives, and other interesting plant related facts will be shared. People of all ages and experience levels are welcome. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes that may get wet. Each walk stands alone, or attend them all to get a free mini-course on plant identification. You can find the complete list of walks under the Field Trip Tab. For more information contact: Vikki Jackson at 319-6988 or via email at vikki.jackson8@gmail.com.
