Tahoe Summer Exploration Series: Wildflower Walk at Galena Falls with TINS
August 10, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
As part of the Tahoe Summer Exploration Series, the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) have partnered to provide summer excursions on a variety of nature-based topics.
Join TINS naturalist Sarah Hockensmith as she leads the way in search of birds and flowers near a gorgeous waterfall to discuss and watch firsthand their physical characteristics and behavior. You’ll walk away from this trek with a better knowledge of what kinds of birds live and migrate through Tahoe, what types of flowers grow in and near the basin, the low-down on great birding and wildflower destinations in the Tahoe Basin, and some worthy photos.
This four-mile, easy, out-and-back trek is family-friendly and appropriate for ages 10 and up.
What to Expect:
TRTA outings are group outings, and we do our best to keep the group together. Trip leaders dedicate much of their time throughout the year, sharing their passion for the outdoors. They are well-trained and experienced. Please respect their decisions made on the trail.
