Spring Hike Series: More than Morels

KS Wild, Friends of the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument, and the Siskiyou Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon team up on this series of hikes chasing the wildflowers through the elevations in our backyard monument. Join us for one hike, or all three and discover the secret treasures blooming at all around us. Starting in the lowest elevations the hike series will be determined by what is blooming at the time of these dates:

Carpools from Ashland will be available. Sign up for more details.

April 6th - 9am - 2pm

More Than Morels

Mycology expert and founder of Zoom Mycology, Bashira Muhammad will lead the first hike in our Spring Buzz and Bloom series. Searching for the elusive morel has grown increasingly popular in Southern Oregon in recent years, but don’t overlook the many other mycological treasures hidden throughout our region.  Bashira will lead participants through the Monument on a search to identify a myriad of native mycelium. The location of the hike will be determined based of weather conditions and where the mushrooms are blooming. Sign-up to get up-to-date information on carpool and hike locations.
