The Bear Camp Botanical Area, located halfway between Galice and Agness along Bear Camp Road, is not “signed” on the ground, and rarely visited for botany excursions. On this trip we’ll show you the best routes to enjoy this amazing area, and visit many of its unusual plants. You’ll also learn about the process of designating a Botanical Area and become acquainted with botanist Veva Stansell’s life. Veva conducted extensive plant surveys in this area over many years (providing the basis for its approval as a Botanical Area), and left a legacy of sharing botanical joy with everyone. 

Field day is advanced (3-5 miles of hiking and/or climbs of up to 1,000 ft).

Ages 18+ welcome.
