Program Overview: Whether you’re new to birding and botany or you want to learn more about Yosemite’s high-country ecology, you’re bound to enjoy this relaxing weekend with a naturalist guide. During a series of day hikes in the White Wolf area, you’ll learn about and look for diverse bird and plant species that live at the park’s high elevations. Enjoy summer scenery as you practice identifying songbirds by sight and sound, and using clues such as petal count and color to figure out which wildflowers are blooming along the trails. This weekend offers naturalists of all levels a can’t-miss opportunity to learn from a Yosemite expert and recharge in the beautiful Sierra Nevada.
