First Tuesday Lectures
July 5th: “Pasayten Wildflowers”
7:00 - 8:30pm, at The Merc Playhouse in Twisp.
Spanish Camp, Sheep Mountain, Ashnola, Horseshoe Basin… this is the high country of the Pasayten where retired USFS Methow Valley Ranger District botanist Therese Ohlson has spent many summers surveying plants. The Pasayten is rich in wetlands, colorful flower meadows, talus and fell fields, unique hummock topography, and arctic tundra and boreal plants at the southern extent of their range. Explore the colors, survival skills and diversity of the plants of the high-country in the air-conditioned Merc!
The program is free and open to everyone. Doors open at 6:30pm. Light refreshments available. For more information, contact us at 996-2870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
