Add to Calendar Sun Lakes State Park
Fri., May 31, 2013 – Sun., June 2, 2013

(Registration Deadline is May 1st.  No refunds after May 1st, 2013)

This year’s Botany Washington is being co-sponsored by the Washington Native Plant Society and the University of Washington Herbarium at the Burke Museum. Our goal is to provide an outstanding opportunity for participants of all levels of botanical skill to explore the rich diversity of Central Washington’s flora in the lower Grand Coulee through three tracks of field study: one designed for technical study of selected taxonomic groups, one for improving plant keying skills using the Flora of the Pacific Northwest, and the other designed for individuals with little or no botanical background but who are interested in learning more about wildflowers of this area.
