Meet in the parking lot of the North Mountain Park Nature Center in Ashland at 11am.
Join us for this event if you would like to know more about the program and Botanical Areas in the Klamath-Siskiyou, or if you are already an active volunteer. Our Adopt a Botanical Area program is a community watchdog program designed to mobilize volunteers to be KS Wild’s eyes an ears on the ground in designated Botanical Areas throughout the Klamath-Siskiyou region.
The Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion is celebrated as a host to some of the most diverse plant life on earth, including an array of wildflowers on display every spring and summer. Some of our crown jewels of botanical diversity are supposed to be protected in “Botanical Areas” within National Forests and “Areas of Critical Environmental Concern” on BLM lands.
The program will include a talk from a Botanist with the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest, an overview of Botanical Areas in our region, and a training for those who like to participate, or already are volunteers, with our Adopt a Botanical Area program.
