Wildflower ID – Sunday Hike

July 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am

Free

Come and enjoy the wildflowers along the Pacific Crest Trail from East Hyatt Lake Road to Little Hyatt Reservoir. We will have the opportunity to stop and identify wildflowers along the way with the help of Collette Streight, Executive Director of Friends of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, and Liz Landreth, our resident “Flower Floozy!”

Liz Landreth has been conducting wildflower walks for adults and kids off and on for more than 15 years. She began with the Sonoma County Parks Department and, since moving to Ashland, with the Ashland Hiking Group, Southern Oregon Land Conservancy and Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. She is an amateur botanist with emphasis on intriguing stories about plants and our relationships with them.

We will meet at 9 a.m. Sunday, July 2, at the Rite Aid in Ashland, and make our way into the Monument from there. Bring a lunch or snack to enjoy at the top, and plenty of water and sun protection for the more exposed sections. Hiking boots are recommended. This will be a moderate-to-easy hike.

The Friends of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a nonprofit organization, and our mission is to support the protection, restoration, and conservation of the monument through service, advocacy, and education. Our Hike and Learn program is designed to introduce the public to different topics and locations within the Monument. Hike and Learns are co-created with local scientists, historians, artists, students, and more.
