The Koma Kulshan Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society regularly hosts educational seminars and field trips. Events are typically free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend this event.

Details: Hundreds of moonworts (Botrychium spp.) of seven different species can be found at Yellow Aster Butte in a good year. We’ll see how many we can find and identify. In addition, there are plenty of other ferns, flowering plants, and amazing views on this hike to hold our interest. This is a moderately strenuous, 7-mile round-trip hike, with an elevation gain of up to 2200 feet.

Meetup location: PLEASE NOTE that the meetup location is different from the actual event location. We will meet at the southeast corner of the Sunset Square Safeway parking lot at 7:30 AM. Bring a lunch, snacks, and water, and dress for the weather.

RSVP: Registration required for this trip. Visit the website provided for instructions on how to register.
