Botany Washington 2018

Botany Washington 2018                        

Late Spring Along Willapa Bay, Pacific County, WA                  

June 8-10, 2018

Basecamp:  Ocean Park Camp & Retreat Center, 
North Long Beach Peninsula

Southwestern Washington is a botanically rich area that includes coastal headlands, extensive stretches of dune community, tidal marshes and flats, and lowland coastal forests that continue upward to the montane areas of the Willapa Hills.  Several species of plants have their northernmost populations in the area, including Baccharis pilularis (chaparral broom) and Castilleja chambersii (Chambers's paintbrush).  This is a wonderful opportunity to visit, explore, and learn about the flora of one of Washington's most distinct regions.

Botany Washington is co-sponsored by the Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS) and the University of Washington Herbarium at the Burke Museum (WTU).  Our goal is to provide an outstanding learning opportunity for participants of all botanical skill levels. This year we will be exploring the floristic and taxonomic diversity of southwest Washington's Long Beach Peninsula and Willapa Bay area.

Registration for the 2018 program has closed.  

The interested enthusiast wishing to learn more about regional floras of Washington will have two days in the field with knowledgeable local experts. It is an opportunity for botanists and others interested in our native flora to work together in a shared community of botanical learning. Membership in the Washington Native Plant Society is not required.

The following pages will support full information for the program, including:

We hope you will join us for this weekend of study and enjoyment on the shores of Willapa bay and the beaches of the Washington coast.
