There’s still room in the Great Basin Wildflowers, Plants, & Habitats field seminar (June 12-14)—reserve your space today!

I recently walked along the Lee Vining Creek Trail and saw a beautiful preview of budding flowers: fragrant desert peach, yellow bitterbrush blossoms, a few bright paintbrush, and the exotic death camas. The wildflower seminar takes place June 12-14, and by that time, the desert should be in beautiful full bloom!

Veteran botanist Mark Bagley teaches the three-day seminar, which focuses on plants in the varied Mono Basin habitats—sagebrush scrub, pumice flats, pinyon-juniper woodland, Jeffrey pine forest, and desert wetlands. Mark has taught Mono Lake Committee seminars for over 20 years, and combines an immense store of knowledge with infectious enthusiasm for a great teaching style.

To register for the Great Basin Wildflowers, Plants, & Habitats field seminar, visit our seminars page and click the “register now!” button. As always, Mono Lake Committee members receive the field seminar discount, or you can join the Committee and get the discount as well! If you have any questions, feel free to call me at the Committee: (760) 647-6595. We hope to see you in the Mono Basin this June!
