Wildflower Hike

Date: 6/4/2019 6:30 PM - 6/4/2019 8:30 PM

Location: Oregon Trail

Tuesday, June 4: Oregon Trail from Bonneville Point

For a very different experience than provided by most trails in the Boise Front, we will explore a section of the Oregon Trail from Bonneville Point (accessed from Blacks Creek Road east of I-84). Serene views, mid-season wildflowers, history, and maybe even a pronghorn or two will be our reward. Distance will be determined by weather conditions and enthusiasm of participants.

The “Treasures of the Boise Front” series of wildflower walks is an introduction to a selection of public trails with the best diversity of native wildflowers throughout the Boise Front. While a few hikes are easy rambles, most walks include some “target” species or habitats that are a mile or more from the nearest trailhead. Expect a steady pace to reach these goals within the 2-3 hour timeframe, interspersed with occasional stops to discuss other plants of particular interest and general natural history. Unless otherwise indicated, walks will begin at 6 pm. No dogs, please.

*Pre-registration is required. These walks are free but have a maximum of 20 participants each. To register, please fill out this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdjXM0VUn5A3W4yzJtJuav5_2XWpIZQuRxUbyDDDMlTyR1_oA/viewform?usp=sf_link
