Join the Washington Native Plant Society, Columbia Basin Chapter, on a wildflower walk. The trail starts high and gradually descends, remaining in the forest for the early miles, then breaking out onto the open with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Near Sawtooth Ridge, in 1826, naturalist David Douglas made the discovery of North America's first known wild peony.
Meet on Whitman Campus in Walla Walla at Harper Joy Theater parking lot at 9 AM or at the Dayton railroad ‘Depot’ in Dayton 50 minutes after Walla Walla time. Carpooling arrangements will be made at meeting places and times. Bring walking stick, tick repellant, hat, lunch, water and a few dollars for driver. Dress appropriately in sturdy walking shoes or boots and, depending on terrain, long pants. General questions about the hikes can be directed to Darcy Dauble firstname.lastname@example.org.
