The Wenatchee Mnts, Geology & Special Plants

December 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Hosted by Wenatchee River Institute

Tuesday, December 13th from 7-8pm @ WRI’s Red Barn             

Join WRI and the Washington Native Plant Society for a Red Barn Event! You’ll learn more about the Wenatchee Mountains, the geology of the area, and some special plants that call this place home. Join us in person in the Red Barn or virtually via Zoom.

The Wenatchee Mountains contain, in a relatively small area, a diverse mix of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. These mountains are also one of the three main centers of endemic plants in Washington state. These geologic and floral diversities are related in several ways. In particular, the uncommon presence of ultramafic soils, derived from metamorphic rocks created deep in the earth’s crust, including serpentinite, has led to strangely beautiful landscapes and plant species specially adapted to these toxic soils.

TED ALWAY is a Peshastin resident, orchardist and, until recently, owner of Derby Canyon Natives. He is fond of most plants and, more recently, rocks.

This is a FREE event with a donation basket at door.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a community social with beer and wine available for purchase. The presentation will start at 7:00pm.
All Red Barn Events are now hybrid, you may join us in person in the Red Barn or livestream virtually via Zoom.
