The Red Desert 3 Day 2 Night Tour and Camp-Out Trip with John Mionczynski June 28-30th
For those of you who went last year this one is sure to be even more amazing covering much more of the Red Desert and much more in depth. For those of you who have never done this, the experience is sure to be one of the highlights of your life. The Wyoming Red Desert is one of the most misunderstood and amazing ecosystems in North America. The Red Desert located in south central Wyoming covers an area of 9,320 square miles. John Mionczynski (ethnobotanist, biologist, and historian) will take us on a caravan drive and hike through a fascinating part of the Red Desert. He will describe the unique flora (discussing plant medicine and plant use) and fauna of the region as well as exploring important archeological sites, fossil beds and geologic formations. If you have attended any of John's workshops this is a must.
