The 2016 Summer Field Trips will once again be based out of Poplar Bluff, MO, but this time we’ll visit sites in the Ozarks of southeastern Missouri. Field trip sites include Markham Springs Recreation Area, Rocky Falls, Klepzig Mill, Watercress Park and Pump Hollow Natural Area. Friday night will feature a presentation about the role of fire in maintaining Ozarks plant communities, by Susan Farrington of the Missouri Department of Conservation. Everyone is welcome to attend some or all of the weekend activities! We’ve reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Poplar Bluff Holiday Inn. The deadline for reserving a room in our block is June 10th!
The link below contains a printable itinerary, maps and lodging information. Plant species lists and additional information for the sites we will soon be available below. See you there!
