2018 A Botanical Exploration of Mt. Eddy and Caldwell Lakes - 1 space available

View from Mt. Eddy summit
1 space available for either lodger or commuter student.

Instructor: Dana York
Dates: Friday-Sunday, July 13-15, 2018
Location: Stewart Springs, CA
Tuition: $250 (includes 2 nights lodging at Flowing Waters Retreat Center)
$150 – Commuter tuition

Experience Mt. Eddy’s unique plants  and magnificent views as we botanize from the PCT trailhead to the summit. Tallest peak in the Klamath range, Mt. Eddy features high elevation serpentine habitat that’s a mecca for botany enthusiasts. Along the trail to its summit you’ll find many different plant communities: riparian, fen, rock gardens in both serpentinite and granitic substrates. Rare plants, including the Mt. Eddy sky pilot, carnivorous California pitcher plant, Mt. Eddy draba and foxtail pines thrive here. You will have the option to stop at Deadfall Lakes and explore surrounding rock gardens and meadows instead of summiting. We’ll meet back in the parking lot and head  to Flowing Waters for a group potluck. On Sunday, we’ll explore adjacent  China Mountain and the source of Parks Creek by hiking on the quieter, recently improved Caldwell Lakes trail where we’ll see Darlingtonia fens, hike through meadows and forest and see Mt. Eddy and Mt. Shasta from a different perspective.

Flowing Waters Retreat Center in Stewart Springs will serve as our home base. Treat yourself to a full-fledged naturalist retreat by lodging in Namaste House, which boasts three bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, deck overlooking Parks Creek and a refreshing swimming hole. The house sleeps 13, including two double beds for couples. A two-night minimum stay is required to lodge here. Information can be found at www. shastaflowingwaters.com. Please call SFI at 541-597-8530 to reserve a bed or campsite.
