Learn About Mountain Wildflowers!
Join us for a full day exploring the La Sal Mountains, and learn to identify wildflower species at the peak of their bloom. Locations depend on snow melt; general elevation of activity between 8-11,000 feet elevation, moderate, mostly on trail hiking.
Joel Tuhy has been studying and photographing wildflowers in Canyonlands for over 30 years. He is a Biologist with Moab’s office of the Nature Conservancy. Joel volunteers his time to CFI for this special outing to share his love of the plant world (the “superior kingdom”) and to help raise scholarship funds for CFI School programs.
Former NPS field biologist Linda Whitham spent six years in area parks conducting floristic studies and freshwater system monitoring; spent nine years leading ecology and wildflower hikes in the Rocky Mountains; and has taught courses on the ecology of the Colorado Plateau. She is currently program manager for The Nature Conservancy overseeing rare plant preserves, managing the Matheson Wetlands Preserve and co-leading the Escalante River Watershed Partnership. Trip starts and ends at CFI in Moab at 8:30 and return by 5:00 p.m. CFI provides snacks, delicious lunch and agency entrance fees.
