As the tallest peak in the Klamaths , Mt. Eddy’s high-elevation serpentine habitat is a mecca for plant enthusiasts. Many rare plants, including the Mt. Eddy sky pilot, carnivorous California pitcher plant, and Mt. Eddy draba, thrive in its rock and wet meadows. In midsummer, diverse butterfly species nectar on the alpine wildflowers. Experience Mt. Eddy’s unique plants and magnificent views. Investigate its assortment of winged visitors on this botany and butterfly study weekend.
Flowing Waters Retreat Center in Stewart Springs will serve as our home base. On Saturday morning, we’ll drive up to the Deadfall Lakes trailhead and hike up to Mt. Eddy to explore its alpine serpentine flora. After lodging Saturday night at the Retreat Center, we’ll spend Sunday in the Deadfall Lakes area and search for and study butterflies as well as wetlands flora.
