Spend a day with Shelley Weisberg exploring the balance between hardiness & fragility in the plant kingdom hiking one of the premier gateway peaks to the Upper Skagit Valley.

Sauk Mountain provides incredible views of the valley lowlands, the Skagit River, the Salish Sea and the sea of peaks that is North Cascades National Park. The steep-but-easy trail winding up delivers us to subalpine meadows where Shelley will orient us to the lupines, penstemons, fireweeds, paintbrushes, lilies and other wonders blooming below our feet. (We have timed this hike at the typical peak of wildflower bloom.)

During the hike, we will be exploring the connections between the subalpine plants, pollinators, seasons and how climate change can is having a profound effect on this ecosystem.

Join us for a wildflower wander in the heart of summer!
