Next Meeting

Overnight field trip, Vantage & Yakina areas

In search of pediocactus while taking in beautiful views of the valley and river.

This is a great opportunity to study these plants in a natural environment with local expert Dixie Dringman.
Several stop options for meeting up:
On Saturday, we can begin by meeting at BJ’s Island restaurant, off Hwy 28.
Search for lewisia at Blewett Pass and you will spot other bloomers - over 50 species of wildflowers grow here.
We suggest an overnight in Ellensburg at a hotel of your choice.
On Sunday we will tour Ron McKitrick’s garden and another local private garden which Ron designed.
After lunch we will meet up and tour the Yakima Area Arboretum.Ron McKitrick’s garden has been featured in the July 2008 issue of “The American Gardener”.
This is a great opportunity to learn about growing cacti in cold climates. Ron has built several raised beds and has landscaped the second garden that we will tour.
