Join local botanist Carol Blackburn, naturalist Ann Christensen and birding experts for the spectacular blue camas lilies of Centennial Marsh. We’ll watch raptors and migrating shorebirds, so bring binoculars if you have them. We’ll also stop to discuss the causes and impacts of the Bannock War between Shoshoni-Bannock tribes and white settlers. This is the 1st of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s (SBG) popular summer wildflower walk series to some of our area’s most diverse and spectacular habitats. Hosted in partnership with the Idaho Native Plant Society.

Walks are free and happen rain or shine. Bring appropriate outerwear, sturdy walking shoes, water, sunscreen, hat and lunch. Some walks are appropriate for children age 7 years and older accompanied by an adult. Call if you have questions. But please leave Fido at home. Carpooling is encouraged; if carpooling, consider helping your driver pay for gas. Donations to the Sawtooth Botanical Garden are welcome.
