Conservation of Applegate's Milkvetch - May 9 Klamath Basin Chapter Meeting

  • May 09, 2017
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Klamath County Museum, 1451 Main St, Klamath Falls

At the next Chapter Meeting, Dr. Kerry Byrne will discuss the challenges and successes of conserving Applegate's milkvetch, a narrow endemic of moist alkali meadows in southern Klamath County.  Once thought to be extinct, this species was rediscovered in 1983 and is now known to exist at only 6 sites in or near the city of Klamath Falls.

Prior to the meeting at 6 pm, Todd Kepple will give a quick tour of the native plant garden in front of the museum for those who are interested. 

This will be the last chapter meeting until October.  Please check the news tab for the April meeting notes, which include a list of summer field trips.  Field trips will be added under the events tab as details are firmed up.  Also check out "plants of the month" and other posts under news.
