Klamath Basin Chapter, 
Native Plant Society of Oregon

Conifer Caravan - led by Sarah Malaby

  • July 18, 2015
  • 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Hwy 140, Cold Springs Trailhead, Pelican Butte


Meet at the US Fish and Wildlife Service parking lot at 1936 California Ave. at 8:30 am (to get to the office turn onto the Hwy 97 southbound on-ramp from Oregon Avenue).

We will see all 14 conifers in the Common Plants of the Upper Klamath Basin book, plus a bonus species as we make several stops along Hwy 140 and the Cold Springs Trailhead Road ending at the top of Pelican Butte. There will be an opportunity to learn other associated plant species, discuss forest ecology, and get some great views.

Roads will be suitable for passenger cars until the turnoff to Pelican Butte. Participants who want to make the full trip should either bring a high clearance vehicle with 4 wheel drive or plan on carpooling. We will likely be returning to KFalls about 2 pm.

Lunch, water, and sturdy shoes are recommended. Mosquitoes may be abundant at some stops.
