The 90+ year tradition of excellent mountain nature studies for adults continues!
Come discover why West Virginia is truly “Almost Heaven”!
At this year’s Mountain Nature Camp (Nature studies for adults) in Terra Alta, WV, I will be the botanist/naturalist. I will be identifying the wildflowers at the camp and on most of the field trips. I’ll also discuss edibility, medicinal uses and other natural history information. I will also lead a hike in the Dolly Sods Wilderness area.
