Includes an excursion to a local site to see camas blooming, and a chance to taste prepared camas bulbs (donated by Kenagy family farm in Albany Oregon). Field hike is moderate: 3 miles round trip with an ankle-deep stream crossing. Secondary, poor-weather field site requires a drive to north of Grants Pass.
