Join us for an exploration of this extremely biodiverse – and geologically active – volcanic region that is a biological crossroads for Sierran and Cascades plants and animals. In our midsummer visit to Lassen, we will aim high – hiking and observing in the subalpine and alpine areas where rare plants and birds can be found. We will also visit other habitats, including meadow and upper montane forest. In the subalpine zone (at 8,000 – 10,000 ft.), we’re likely to see ericaceous plants such as Phyllodoce and cassiope, plus penstemons, castillejas, arabis and knotweed. Bird species at altitude include Clark’s Nutcracker, Cassin’s Finch, Mountain Bluebird and Mountain Chickadee. Going higher into the alpine, we might encounter the Gray-Crowned Rosy Finch as well as plant communities that include buckwheats, Draba aurea, Hulsea, Phacelia and Polemonium pulcherrimum.

We will group camp in the Park meeting late Friday at Butte Lake campground for a course overview and an evening bird walk, then hiking the Lassen Peak Trail Saturday and camping at South Summit campground Saturday night.
