“Plants of the Lewis & Clark Expedition”
A presentation at the Oregon Historical Society, June 3
The Oregon Historical Society will host a talk by author H. Wayne Phillips based on his book Plants of the Lewis & Clark Expedition on Tuesday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. The presentation takes place at the Oregon Historical Society (entrance on SW Madison Street, between Park and Broadway Avenues in downtown Portland). The “Plants of the Lewis & Clark Expedition” program is free of charge and open to the public. Seating is limited to 60.
To create Plants of the Lewis & Clark Expedition author H. Wayne Phillips painstakingly traced the path of the famous explorers, searching for and photographing the plants the expedition members collected as they explored the West. Phillips has organized the plants into six ecological and geographical regions: Pacific Forest, Columbia Plains, Rocky Mountains, High Plains, Tallgrass Prairie, and Eastern Deciduous Forest.
At the June 3 presentation, the author will discuss his book, and show color slides of some of the botany featured in Plants of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. He will also present samples of some of the wildflowers and other plants noted in the journals of Meriwether Lewis.
Author H. Wayne Phillips worked as a Forest Service ecologist and forester for many years and now teaches field classes for the Yellowstone and Glacier Institutes. He is the author of two previously published field guides.
