Field Trip – Wildflowers in the Blues – Sat June 16th – 8:00 AM

Saturday, June 16 – 8:00 a.m.

It’s time again to join Jeff and Cheryl Fredson for a trip to the Blue Mountains to look for wildflowers (and butterflies and birds). We will start at their place on Weston Mountain (between Weston and Tollgate) where last year’s highlights included Phantom and Lady Slipper Orchids.

Jeff and Cheryl have an encyclopedic knowledge of the wildflowers in the Blue Mountains and will take us to locations they have staked out. In the past they have taken us to several locations along Summit Road, Target Meadows Campground, Bald Mountain pullout on the road to Jubilee Lake and other locations. We could easily see a total of 80 to 100 species of wildflowers.

If you love wildflowers and mountain-fresh air, this is a field trip you do not want to miss. This will be an all-day trip and we will be doing a bit of walking. Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. Don’t forget to bring a lunch, a wildflower field guide if you have one and a friend or two.

We will meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot and car pool. If you have questions, call or e-mail Jeff and Cheryl at 541-215-0532 or
