Botany workshop at Mountain Meadows (Walker Lake)
Saturday, June 5th, 9am to noon
Join FRLT in learning about the unique plant species of the Feather River region and take a walk to explore the diverse plant life near Mountain Meadows Reservoir (Walker Lake) with botanist and FRLT member John Stebbins.
We’ll start the morning with a short workshop highlighting some of the most interesting plants of the watershed. John will share what makes these species so unique and why it’s important to protect their habitat. He’ll also share tips on what to look for in identifying them. Then we’ll head out to explore the shore of Mountain Meadows Reservoir and enjoy searching for wildflowers and other interesting native plants.
Registration required (20 participants). See event details and register below.
