Sunday, July 25, 10am-3:30pm
Journey through distinct Western Washington ecosystems with eco-educators to enhance your overall understanding of underlying ecological processes and plant-identification skills. For our final Excursion of this summer, we’re visiting natural areas in Gray’s Harbor County to explore the unique plants and natural processes of outer coastal dunes, beaches, and saltmarshes. Join this fun day of collaborative learning in the salty breezes!
Just a few more spots open!

To account for the COVID-19 pandemic and physical-distancing, we have made a handful of changes to the format of Native Plant Excursion events. You can read our COVID-19 Safety Protocols for the field here! Participants must review these protocols before the event.
We have highlighted the main points as they affect Native Plant Excursion events below:
The maximum number of participants permitted at an event will be determined based on the phase of Washington’s “Roadmap to Recovery” guidelines, as well as any other local or state requirements or guidance.
No one may participate without masks that fully cover mouth and nose. We will update masking requirements at the time of the events, but at least one mask will still be required in summer 2021.
Learning will be separated into “COVID-quarantine Units” (CQU) so physical distancing is always maintained. A “Covid-quarantine unit” means those with whom you have been sharing contact during this time of social isolation, such that you are already safe to be in proximity to each other, including those in your household as well as friends in your close circle.
CQUs must plan to distance each other by CDC recommendations by the time of these events. Instructors will teach from that distance (and provide groups with their own laminated/illustrated instructional materials).
