Event Description

The remote Cascade Mountain wilderness of Northern California is a sight to behold. Recent volcanism has left behind an eerie expanse of rugged terrain dominated by cinder cones, dormant volcanic peaks, and lava flows, all of which give the area a unique look and feel. Mount Shasta (14,162’) and Mount Lassen (10,457’) dominate the horizon, instilling reverence and awe in all who stand in their shadows. Other notable features of the region are the mighty Pit River, which carves its way between the two massive peaks, and the spectacular Burney Falls, which cascades 130’ from its lofty source to the creek below. Floristically, the area is heavily influenced by nearby Sierran and Great Basin Desert elements. Come join us as we explore (and enjoy) this rich botanical landscape while learning about the many useful plants found growing there, including: the insectivorous Sundew, Western Pasque Flower, Button-Celery, Corydalis, Serviceberry, Shasta Fir, Blue Camas, Shasta Lily, Bitterbrush, Fawn-Lily, Bog-Bean, Horsemint, Sugar Pine, and many others! We’ll spend our days hiking and botanizing while reserving evenings for interactive hands-on workshops and relaxing fireside conversation. Keep in mind that cool & refreshing river floats and tension melting hot springs will be worked into the curriculum as well! This full immersion academic field outing should prove to be insightful and rewarding for anyone interested in knowing more about the unique flora of the region.
