GROWISER. a Native Plant Preserve in the Blues
Saturday, May 19 – 8:00 a.m

Mike Denny has made arrangements to visit GROWISER, a 220-acre native plant conservation area 5 miles north of Summerville, Oregon (near Elgin). GROWISER is short for Grande Ronde Overlook Wildflower Institute Serving Ecological Restoration. The non-profit organization has the objective of creating an area with only the plants that were here 200 years ago.
Andy Huber, Oregon State University Associate Professor, has set up the grounds for groups to observe and learn about native plants (grasses, wildflowers, etc.) as well as animals (hummingbirds, owls, etc.).

Bring a lunch, your binoculars, your camera and a friend or two for this special all-day trip. Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot and we will carpool. If you have any questions, call or e-mail Mike at 529-0080 or
