Special event! Join host, Ethnobotonist and author Kat Anderson at the Plankhouse for a special presentation, "Beauty, Bounty and Biodiversity," and night hike! May 26th, 7-8:30pm, free with refuge admission. The night hike is FULL! Plenty of room in the talk still though!

7:00pm: Kat Anderson will share connections with California and Pacific Northwest tribes, by examining traditionally managed edible wildlflower gardens of California. She will also explore the implication that these gardens have for fostering pollinator habitat, increasing biodiversity, and the ways in which these plants have evolved to meet the needs of people.

The 8:30 Night hike is full! See you next time!
