Building a Wetland

  • November 13, 2021
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Lakeport Blvd, Klamath Falls
Description:       
Kathy Sale will lead us on a tour of the different portions of the newly constructed wetland which include upland, wet meadow, and emergent vegetation. The upland has been planted with native plants such as choke cherry, Wood’s rose, and Douglas spirea. 

There will be a discussion of the plans for planting the wet meadow in the spring, which includes the use of “plant mats” that are seeded with a mixture of native wet meadow species such as small camas, Baltic rush and seep monkey flower.

Kathy Sale is a botanist with the Restoration Services team for the Pacific Northwest region of the Forest Service.

This walk is easy to moderate. There will be some wet, muddy areas, so please wear sturdy hiking shoes or rain boots. Bring snacks and ample drinking water.
Directions:      
From Klamath Falls, take Highway 97 North and turnoff onto Lakeshore Boulevard which is just past the weighing station on the left.  Follow Lakeport Boulevard to the area where two large steel gates are located. The wetland is behind these gates.  Parking is limited so carpooling is advised.  To carpool, meet at the Klamath Co. Museum at 9:00am.
