Native Plant Field Trip to Newhalem Fire Area and Pyramid Lake

Education, Green/Environmental, Nature

There was a major fire in the Newhalem area during 2015. Extensive regrowth has occurred in the burned area. We will visit one portion of the fire near Goodell Creek to learn more about which plants have returned to the burned area and which plants may still be missing four years after the fire. We will then move further along Highway 20 to a moderately rigorous hike to Pyramid Lake (4.2 miles round trip with 1,500 feet gain). The trail has a high diversity of plants, topped off by a floating log garden in Pyramid Lake. The field trip will be led by Jim Davis and Abe Lloyd. Meet at 8am at the Fairhaven Parkway Park & Ride off 32nd street on the west side of I-5. If you have questions, contact Jim Davis at 360-296-5159 or jimdaviscpc@comcast.net.
