A chance to hear and see more about the Palouse Prairie of Washington’s Whitman County! James has been involved with informative and productive surveys of these beautiful remnants, from the projects’ beginnings in 2015. He will summarize the two seasons and discuss notable findings. Related future projects of Palouse Conservation District will be introduced. Last but not least, there will be lots of native plant pictures!


James’ research includes the structures and strategies of milkweeds and orchids, and he has previously provided White Pine with programs and field trips highlighting these unique native plants. In addition to his work with Palouse Conservation District, James is teaching Systematic Botany at University of Idaho this semester.


Free:  Small seed packets of various native plants will be available for you to select from, provided by White Pine Chapter members and friends!
