UPCOMING LECTURES, WALKS, and HIKES
Friday, June 22, 10:00 a.m.- 1:30 p.m. – Wally’s World Wildflower Hike. Join Frances Clark on a 3-mile round-trip hike up to Wally’s World, located just north and east of Red Top Meadows. The moderate hike will take us along a willow shrub swamp, through extensive aspen groves with flowering yellow-bracted lousewort, fern-leaf lovage, and heart-leaved arnica, and up a winding trail to see the extravaganza of mule’s ears covering the open slopes. Antelope bitterbrush, sticky geranium, and snowberry are also blooming. Bring a light lunch and water, and binoculars if you are interested in birds. Meet: USFS trailhead on Fall Creek Road: From Rte. 22 in Wilson, go south on Fall Creek Road for 10.5 miles. Parking is on the right. And if you can’t make it on Friday, go now with a friend. Its wonderful.
