field trips

A great benefit of membership in NWNARGS is the opportunity to participate in expert-led hikes and field trips around Washington State. These trips offer rare chances to see some of the stunning native plants of our area in their natural setting. The hikes range in difficulty from easy to moderate, and are primarily conducted at a slow, botanizing pace.

 

(Please note that the list of hikes below are proposals based on hikes from past years - factors such as weather, bloom times of specific species, and chapter member interest will determine which hikes are undertaken.
