WNPS Field Trip: Hidden Forest Foray

Education, Nature, Green/Environmental

Our local chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society offers free field trips all year round. During the spring and early summer seasons, we lead introductory plant walks for folks of all ages and skill levels. If you've ever wanted to learn the names of those plants you see on the trails all the time, these are the hikes for you. This May, on the 23rd, explore the plants of the Sehome Hill Arboretum, a “secret” natural area in the heart of Bellingham with guidebook author and former Arboretum board member. Sehome Hill was logged in the early 20th century and is now developing a mature second-growth forest. We’ll look at trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and a vine or two. Learn what’s native and what’s not. Thursday, May 23, 2019, 6:00 p.m. to dusk. Meet in the parking area at the top of Arboretum Drive (off Bill McDonald Parkway).
