When: Wed., Feb. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2019
The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) invites the public to "Conifers of the Klamath Mountains: 2018 field updates." For over 15 years, educator, author, and ecologist Michael Kauffmann has been tracking the ecology and distribution of Klamath Mountain conifers. His book, Conifer Country, is the definitive field guide to the region. He has been working with CNPS and with the Klamath, Six Rivers, and Modoc National Forests to map and inventory the rare and threatened conifers of northern California. Michael's program will cover the region, from mountain summits to coastal river valleys, and will provide updates on the status and distribution of many of these charismatic trees. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for snacks, sales, and socializing. The North Coast Chapter of CNPS offers free public programs on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May. 707-822-2015, www.northcoastcnps.org.
