2016 Exploring Conifer Country in the Russian Wilderness



This class has two spaces available. To register, please call us at 541-597-8530.

Instructor
: Michael Kauffmann, M.S.
Dates: Saturday-Sunday, June 11-12, 2016
Location: Meet at Duck Lakes trailhead outside Etna, CA
Tuition: $110


Follow in the footsteps of Humboldt State University botanists John O. Sawyer and Dale Thornburg as we explore the Miracle Mile, a 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 conifers plus the Western Juniper recently reported by Richard Moore. As a bonus, we’ll see many wildflowers in peak bloom and a snow-capped Mt. Shasta from the trail.

Saturday’s strenuous hike will begin at 9:00 a.m. and take us to 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 a single square mile.

After Saturday’s dinner at Etna Brew Pub, we’ll camp at the floriferous serpentine site of Scott Mountain. Michael will lead a botany hike along the Pacific Crest Trail Sunday morning.

*Siskiyou Field Institute is a nondiscriminatory, equal opportunity provider operating under special use permits with the USDA Forest Service - Klamath National Forest.
