Event Overview

Hotter, drier conditions are triggering wildflowers to bloom earlier, but pollinating insects are often unable to get to the flowers before they fade. The result? Plants struggle to reproduce, and pollinators go hungry. Join a guided walk to help scientists gather important information on how bloom times are changing—no prior botany experience needed! 

Come prepared for a short hike with closed-toed shoes, water and bear spray. Notebooks, pens, field guides and light snacks will be provided. We’ll take an easy 2-mile roundtrip hike with lots of stops.
