Botanizing Signal Buttes - SOLD OUT

    
Veva Stansell by Lee Webb                       Erigeron stanselliae
 

THIS FIELD COURSE IS NOW SOLD OUT. Please call 541-597-8530 to add your name to the waiting list.
Instructor: Linda Vorobik, Ph.D.

Date: Saturday, June 16, 2018
Location: Meet at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, Curry County, OR

Tuition: $60 for one field course; $110 (1 Saturday field course + 1 Sunday field course, your choice.)

 

Explore the rare serpentine plant ecosystems Veva Stansell helped describe and protect during her lifetime, including Signal Butte, the site of a former chromium mine and the edge of a slightly serpentinized sheet of peridotite. See the June-blooming erigeron that bears Veva's name! Visit Hunter Creek habitats she studied that are now proposed as a designated Forest Service botanical area. Become familiar with plant families as you hike.
 
We'll meet at Pistol River Friendship Hall to carpool to Signal Butte with botanical stops along the way; hike as far as plant diversity allows, with stories of native plants, their scientific and common names, and stories of their ecology but especially of inspired memories of botanizing with Veva Stansell. 

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.
 

Register for Veva Stansell Weekend courses.
