Trees of the Pacific Northwest - Field Trip

Field trip: Trees of the Pacific Northwest

Trees of the Pacific Northwest - Field Trip - Longs Pass

Take a hike with the Olympia Naturalist Committee to identify native trees. We plan to hike at a naturalist's pace with frequent stops to discuss what we see. The goal of the field trip is to learn about our native trees, not to reach Longs Pass.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.

We will meet at the Beverly Campground on FR 9737 along the N Fork of the Teanaway River.  47.3772, -120.881 . The trailhead is about 5.5 miles up the road from this Campground.  This Campground site has some lower-elevation trees that we would not otherwise see.

Participants may want to camp at Beverly Campground.

More information will be provided by the trip leader as the date approaches. 

The field trip is open only to people who attend the Oct 14, 2019 talk.  The field trip is being offered twice.  Sign up for only one

Oct 19 on the Ingalls Pass Trail

Oct 20 on the Longs Pass trail.  

The Longs Pass trail is in the beautiful Teanaway region.  These trails are at mid-to-high elevation just east of the Cascade crest in a high-diversity zone.  You are likely to see tree species that you don't see every day.  One example is the subalpine larch, which should be displaying its golden finery.
