Join Eva Nagy and Katharine Steig for a 2.5 hrs. exploration of the Yew Lake area.  Unique North Shore Mtns. sub-alpine area at 925 m. elev. where both low and high elevation plant species can be found growing side by side. The 2.5 km, mostly level Yew Lake Trail and Old-Growth Loop pass through meadows, wetlands and special old-growth forest.  Focus will be on plant ID & recording what’s in bloom since the July 1 visit. Bring a lunch, water, and protective clothing for changing mountain weather. Meet at 10:30 a.m. outside Black Mtn. Lodge (not Cypress Creek Lodge) in the Cypress Bowl parking lot.
