See the June blooming erigeron that bears her name! Visit Hunter Creek habitats she studied that are now proposed as a designated Forest Service botanical area. Learn botanizing, sketching and photography skills as you hike! Instructors include Dr. Linda Vorobik, marine biologist Dr. Larry Basch, and Lee Webb (retired USFS wildlife biologist).

We'll start the weekend with a public program at the Pistol River Friendship Hall Friday evening. Saturday, you have the option of two different field courses exploring the natural history of the area: Botanizing Signal Butte with Linda Vorobik and Ecology of the Pistol River with Larry Basch. On Sunday, the two options are: Botanical Sketching with Linda Vorobik and Wildflower Photography with Lee Webb.

Thanks to a donation from Linda Vorobik, scholarships are available to eligible Curry County residents through the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society, which Veva co-founded. Email programcoord@thesfi.org for more information.
