In honor of the late Siskiyou naturalist Mary Paetzel’s 100th birthday, we’ll visit one of the locations she loved the most, a Darlingtonia fen at Mud Springs. Here, Mary discovered the Siskiyou subspecies of the Mariposa copper butterfly that now bears her name. We’ll explore and botanize the Mud Springs– Flattop area with Lee Webb, talk about Mary’s observations of the natural world in the Siskiyous and read from some of her works.
