The calendar may say August is ending. But the Idaho Native Plant Society is still conducting wildflower walks.

On Wednesday, Sept. 1, members of the local society will lead a walk examining the gallery forest in Hailey’s Draper Preserve.

“Believe it or not, this is a very unusual ecosystem, and we will find out why as we walk through the preserve,” said Lisa Horton, an avid naturalist.

The easy walk will be about two miles in length on a flat well-maintained dirt path.

Those wishing to attend should meet at 5:45 p.m. at the Pavilion with the picnic table on the south end of Lion’s Park off Bullion Street.  And bring binoculars, if you have them, as there should be ample opportunities to do a little bird watching, as well.

NEXT UP:

The Idaho Native Plant Society will continue its tradition of seeking out “One Big Tree” on Oct. 2. This year, that will be a huge inland Douglas Fir west of Fairfield.

The big tree walks always elicit a lot of oohs and ahhs from those aboard.

The trip involves a lot of driving but only about 200 yards of walking through sagebrush and over gopher holes. Participants should meet at the Hailey Park & Ride lot at 8;30 a.m. that day or at the Timmerman Hill Rest Stop at 9 a.m.
