Exploring Conifer Country in the Russian Wilderness


 
Instructor: Michael Kauffmann
Dates: Saturday-Sunday, August 15-16, 2015
Location: Little Duck Lake and Scott Mountain Campground outside Etna, California*
Tuition: $110 (does not include Saturday night dinner cost)
 
Follow in the footsteps of Humboldt State University botanists John O. Sawyer and Dale Thornburg as we explore the Miracle Mile, a botanist’s granitic wonderland. Sawyer and Thornburg found 17 conifer species and hundreds of other vascular plants within a square mile. We will hopefully see most of the 17 plus the Western Juniper later reported by Richard Moore. Saturday’s strenuous hike will begin at 9:00 a.m. and take us to alpine Little Duck Lake and back again through diverse habitats and elevations – total round trip about 11 miles. Conifer Country author Michael Kauffmann will discuss the area’s natural history, explaining how soil, climate and topography all contributed to the phenomenon of so many species co-habiting one square mile. After a Saturday dinner at Etna Brew Pub, we’ll camp at the serpentine site of Scott Mountain. Sunday morning Michael will lead a short hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, which passes through the campground.
