Nature detectives

Sunday 8:30 AM-11:30 AM
Trip# 439: Nature detectives
Description: Get up close and personal with the Mono Basin wildflowers! Sue will lead you to and through several wildflower locations, starting in County Park. You'll learn about wildflower habitats and bioregions, and, using field journaling methods and a magnifying glass, you'll be drawn into following your curiosity, gaining new perspective and deepening your connection to nature. The wildflower season is very short in the Mono Basin, but spectacularly intense. Field journaling techniques include using watercolors, pen or pencil, camera, even written or recorded words - the keyword is portability. Please be sure to bring a journal of some kind, a magnifying glass or hand lens, a hat, sunscreen, and water. Beginners welcome! (est. driving miles: 25; hiking difficulty: easy to moderate)
