FLORA – Jack Nisbet, local writer/historian, will lead a nifty “clinic” on wildflowers on Wednesday, starting with 4 p.m. stroll through the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture exhibit, “In the Footsteps of David Douglas.”
At 5 p.m., he’ll lead the group on a hike in the Iller Creek portion of Spokane County's Dishman Hills Conservation Area to study the same monkshood, rein orchid, thimbleberry and yew trees that botanist Douglas – namesake of the Douglas fir -- collected in our area in 1826.
Nisbet knows the topic after authoring the book "The Collector: David Douglass and the Natural History of the Northwest."
Cost: $10. Space limited. Pre-register, 466-2823.
