This class will use all our senses to explore and learn about blooming wildflowers in the Wenatchee Foothills. Each week, we will study 3-5 plants on site, learning key identification characteristics and creating a personal field journal (provided). Our study will include learning about each wildflower’s habitat, ecological role, and its use by animals and people. Loaner magnifying lens and a field identification guide will be provided. This class is in partnership with Chelan-Douglas Land Trust and we will use trails at the Jacobson Preserve. In case of rain, we will meet at a nearby covered location.
Fitness level: Participants need to be able to walk on uneven surface of an uphill and downhill trail. We will cover up to 1-mile total round trip, walking at a slow space. We will be sitting on the ground to conduct close-up field study.
