CANCELED - Botany Hike at Horse Lake

9:00am - 2:00pm

This outing is full! Thank you for your interest. 

Join Olivia, CDLT's Botanist, for a mellow hike along the Old Ranch Road at Horse Lake Reserve.

We will aim to make it up to the western point of Glacier View trail, where we hope to see snow douglasia in bloom. We may also see blooming balsamroot, desert-parsleys, serviceberry, pussytoes, brodiaea, lupine, springbeauty, blue-eyed Mary, yellow bells, waterleaf, prairie-star, Oregon grape, bluebells, phlox, currant, and more. We will take a break around noon for lunch. No botanical experience needed; we will bring a plant list in case anyone is interested. We can walk and talk about plants, restoration, weed control, and/or whatever the people are interested in. Link to Horse Lake Reserve plant list:

Participants can expect a light to moderate hike with a total distance of 4.5 miles and 800 feet of elevation gain. This event is for all ages. There is a carpooling option from the end of the pavement up to the trailhead, please bring a mask if you plan to carpool.
