WNPS Field Trip: Ravencrest Farm

Education, Nature, Green/Environmental

Our local chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society invites you on a special field trip to Ravencrest Farm on Hemmi Road, led by a cell and molecular biologist and plant expert June 15, Saturday, 10:00 AM. We will welcome summer with a field trip to Ravencrest Farm from 10:00 AM to 1:00 pm. Ravencrest Farm, located on E. Hemmi Road in Whatcom County, is dedicated to habitat restoration and research on native plants. We’ll assess how the understory vegetation is recovering three years after cessation of cattle grazing, and how the unusually cold early spring weather has affected bud break and bloom phenology. Bring lunch, and feel free to supplement it with a garnish of any native edible that is abundant (miner’s lettuce, for example). Hot and cold drinks will be provided. Please email for directions.
