Students will hike into one of the premier wilderness areas in California to explore its unusual plant communities and rare endemics. Marble Mountain Wilderness is a magical mix of unique geology and plants in the Klamath Ranges subregion. The group will meet Friday evening for an overview of Marbles flora. Saturday, we’ll embark on a 12-mile round trip hike as far as Marble Gap on Marble Mountain, stopping to botanize in coniferous forest, meadows and rock gardens along the way. Saturday evening, our group will gather at the Etna Brew Pub for dinner. Sunday, we’ll drive up a rugged road (high-clearance vehicles only) for a short walk to an alpine bog populated with sundews and other special plants.
Group lodging provided at the Collier Hotel in Etna. We also offer a day student tuition option.
