Explore the high Siskiyous and revel in their floral diversity! The class will first explore the meadows and serpentine rock gardens in the Poker Flat area in Klamath National Forest. We will stop to key out and identify plants using The Jepson Manual and hear their stories from instructor Linda Vorobik. Sunday, we’ll head for Bolan Peak and Bolan Lake in the Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest, hiking the loop from the Lookout to the lake, botanizing rock gardens and meadows along the way.
