Lower Graywolf botanizing walk

Join the Natural History Society for a botanizing walk and picnic  along the Lower Graywolf River on Wednesday, June 21, from 9:00 am to approximately 3:00 pm.

This walk is a round trip of four to five  miles, rated ‘2’ for difficulty.

The Lower Graywolf River trail meanders through a wide variety of northwest native plants under old growth forest of hemlock and fir  reserved in the Buckhorn Wilderness.

A lowland hike, the trail heads downward 1,400 feet for about two miles to the river, which is often within earshot.  The trail traverses many small feeder creeks.  The Graywolf  River is a beautiful, year-round stream that in the lower reaches flows through a scenic canyon cut in pillow basalt.

While the trail  continues another two miles, we will stop here. This is our lunch spot
and turn-around point.

Bring a lunch, water, layers of clothing, hiking shoes, rain jacket, and a field guide and binoculars if you  have them.

RSVP to Marcia for location and details about carpooling at  JLTnatural@saveland.org.
