Wildflowers, Wildlife & Spectacular Landscapes!
June 24–July 5, 2015
A Special Expedition for Friends and Members of New England Wild Flower Society

Dear Friends:

We invite you to join us to explore the wonderful wildflowers, wildlife and spectacular landscapes of Alaska in 2015!

Alaska possesses a profusion of native plants from streamside to mountainside. There are more than 1,500 plant species in the 49th state, from sea level to just below the snow line. Summer is the bountiful time for flowering plants, their pollinators, and large mammals who feed on the nutritious flowers or bulbs.


On this expedition, we will traverse Alaska from Anchorage to Seward, traveling along the scenic Cook Inlet and spectacular Chugach Mountains, and then up the Denali Highway to Denali National Park.

We will hike on Hatcher Pass, and see stately forests, botanic gardens, scenic streamside walks teeming with flowers, and dwarf tundra plants on the mountain tops. We'll stay two nights in the heart of Denali National Park, the finest park and wildlife preserve in Alaska, home to grizzlies, caribou, Dall sheep and abundant wildflowers, and then visit Fairbanks in the interior of Alaska.

Leading this expedition will be John Burns, the Administrative Coordinator for the Plant Conservation Volunteer Program for the Society. John lived in Alaska for several years and led the Society's Ecuador and Madagascar trips. Co-leading will be Justin Gibson, an Alaskan naturalist with a focus on mammals.

We hope you will join our exploration of this vast and beautiful land!

Sincerely yours,

John Burns
For the New England Wild Flower Society
