Earth Day on the Rocks
Sunday April 23, Medford, 10:00am-1:00pm
Join us for a hike on Lower Table Rock during the height of wildflower season. Learn about the oaks that are sprouting their spring leaves, and marvel at the stunning array of wildflowers and the views across to Mt McLoughlin and the Cascades. The hike will be guided by Lomakatsi’s Restoration Ecologist Sean Prive, and Michael Karnosh of the Grand Ronde Tribe, who will share information on the ecological and cultural importance of the Table Rocks.
Lomakatsi has been working to restore the oak woodlands of Table Rocks for the past two years, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and the Bureau of Land Management. Only 10 percent of the low-elevation oak savannas that used to stretch from northern California to British Columbia still exist, meaning that the oak woodlands at Table Rocks provide priceless habitat and food for wildlife.
