The 2020 annual meeting of the Idaho Native Plant Society will be hosted by the Sawabi Chapter from Pocatello on June 12 – 15. The Mink Creek Group Site on the Caribou National Forest will be the center of activity (Google Earth – Mink Creek Group Campground).
Tentative plans call for 3 plant walks each day on Friday and Saturday and 2 plant walks on Sunday. These walks will be around the local area and you’ll see what the Sawabi members do on Saturdays and Mondays in the spring. Visits to the Ray J. Davis Herbarium on the ISU campus and the U of I Agricultural Experiment Station in Aberdeen, Idaho are also planned.
Some RV spots and tent sites will be available at the group site, no hookups and few trees. The Group Site is 7 miles/16 minutes from the Scout Mountain Campground, Caribou National Forest (recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/233968).
Registration will be the old-fashioned way, by check in the mail. Watch for the registration forms on the website (idahonativeplants.org) and in the next Sage Notes.
