SHERIDAN — The Bighorn Native Plant Society will have its first field trip of the season Saturday.

Bob Giurgevich will lead this trip to explore the spring flowers at the Amsden Creek Winter Range.

This area usually has an abundance of early blooms and has several habitats to explore.

Those planning to attend should meet at 8 a.m. at the Sheridan Kmart parking lot near the recycling bins.

Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and snacks or a sack lunch.

The trip is open to anyone interested in learning more about our native flora.

The field trip will be canceled if it is raining Saturday.
If you have questions call Bob Giurgevich at 672-5064.

The Bighorn Native Plant Society was established in 2000 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging the appreciation and conservation of native flora and plant communities in the Bighorn Mountains and adjacent plains.

Other planned field trips for the summer include a Penrose Park Trail Hike in the Story area on June 9 and the Pasture Park Trail near the Bull Creek Campground off Highway 16 on July 13.

Both of these trips will be led by Ami Erickson.
