Discover the plant diversity of the Blue Mountains with botanist Emil Doyle.In this fall field event, we will visit an unmarked but well-trodden and shaded trail following the mainstem of Tiger Creek, a deeply carved ravine harboring moisture-loving flora such as red alder, pacific ninebark and western yew. Together, we’ll look at bryophytes, ferns, and visit plants that have reached their end-of-season forms.Join this guided hike to learn simple botanical terminology, the larger pictures of ecoregions and plant communities, riparian ecology, and plant identification tips. Bonus lesson: a primer on easy-to-recognize lichen species.Emil Doyle has self-published a guide on Northernmost Blues ecology, botany and lichens. Students may purchase this resource for $15. Handouts will also be provided on the day of the event, and 10x loupes (aka magnification glass) will be available on loan.Cost: $55 for members, $65 for non-members. Register today: email Katy Rizzuti for more information.
