We'll spend a few hours birding the beautiful montane and subalpine chaparral, forests, and meadows on Mt. Ashland and will likely see Green-tailed Towhee, White-headed Woodpecker, and Cassin's Finch. Then the class will catch bumble bees and learn about pollination ecology followed by meeting rare and endemic flowers (Mt. Ashland lupine and Henderson's horkelia) as well as common plants.
