2015, April | FR14 Conifers of the North Coast
Time - 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Michael Kauffmann
Michael Kauffmann, author of Conifer Country, Conifers of the Pacific Slope, and A Field Guide to Manzanitas (summer 2015) will lead an exploration into the Klamath Mountains, home to one of the most species-rich temperate coniferous forests on Earth. The trip will be centered along South Fork Mountain which, due to proximity to the Pacific Ocean and complex soils, fosters complex plant associations–including over half of all the plant families in California. During the day the group will explore the mutualistic relationships between birds and conifers and, while in the field, search out regionally exceptional tree and bird species. Price of the trip also includes the choice of one of Michael’s books.
