Foothills Wildflower Field Study

May 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This class at WVC Continuing Education program (wvc.edu/ced) will use all your senses to explore and learn about blooming wildflowers in the Wenatchee Foothills. Each week, you will study 3-5 plants on site, learning key identification characteristics and creating a personal field journal (provided). The study will include learning about each wildflower’s habitat, ecological role, and its use by animals and people. Loaner magnifying lens and a field identification guide will be provided. This class is in partnership with Chelan-Douglas Land Trust and we will use trails at the Jacobson Preserve. In case of rain, we will meet at a nearby covered location. Fitness Level: Participants need to be able to walk on uneven surface of an uphill and downhill trail. The course will cover up to 1 mile total roundtrip, walking at a slow pace.
