Join the Sawtooth Botanical Garden (SBG) and friends for this popular spring summer wildflower walk series to some of our local area’s most diverse and spectacular habitats.  Walks 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, but please leave your dog at home. Call if you have questions: 208-726-9358.

All trips start at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden, 11 Gimlet Road, 4 miles south of Ketchum.  We will carpool from SBG which helps reduce the group’s environmental footprint. Wildflower Walks are led by local experts and are free; donations to the Sawtooth Botanical Garden are very much appreciated.

Wildflower Walk destinations are to be determined by what is blooming where and when (Have a hot tip? Let us know!). Locations will be posted here when they are known. Participants are encouraged to always meet at the Garden and carpool to the site.
