Field Trips at this moment are still not permitted. Meanwhile, make your own field trips, avoiding crowded places.  See the Places to See Plants page under the Activities tab of the website.  The Elk River Spit feels wild and is close. Any trail in Prairie Creek State Park is guaranteed to awe and please.  Horse Mountain area offers an alpine feel only an hour from town.  See the Hiking Humboldt books by Ken Burton and Rees Hughes and Redwood Parks books by Jerry and Gisela Rohde.   Share your photos on www.facebook.com/groups/NorthCoastCNPS/.

Evening program 

September 9, Wednesday, 7:00 p.m. Zoom webinar. Mt. Rainier Wildflower Adventure. Join Donna Wildearth on a journey to see the subalpine wildflowers on Mt. Rainier, which John Muir referred to as “. . . the most luxurious and the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top ramblings.” With Donna and Kathy Dilley’s photos and informative comments, Donna will recount their trip last year to see this wildflower spectacle.  To register with Zoom go to our website.
