Highland Wonders-Okanogan Ice Islands

January 7, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

When: Friday, January 7 at 6:30pm

Where: Community Cultural Center of Tonasket, 411 S. Western Ave.

What: Highland Wonders; Okanogan Ice Islands: Nunataks, with George Thornton


High, craggy peaks rise to the West of the Okanogan. These mountains are home to unique plant communities, and our glacial history holds a clue as to why and how those plants come to live where they do. The changing climate endangers these indicators of our glacial past. In this edition of Highland Wonders, we will discuss various theories about local natural history and ecology using Chopaka Mountain as a primary example of several nearby Eastern Cascade peaks.

Join OHA and George Thornton, high school teacher, botanist, and lifelong nature enthusiast, at the Tonasket CCC on January 7, 2022. George has lived his entire life in the Okanogan. He taught for 33 years, worked summers doing vegetation surveys for the Forest Service, and has hiked and explored most of the north Okanogan area.
