Location: Lillooet area
Please join us for our annual PRSSS fall field trip on October 1st and 2nd. This year we will be exploring soils along a precipitation gradient, moving from coastal forest soils, through to the inter-mountain grassland soils of the Lillooet area. This diverse landscape will give us the opportunity to explore podzolic soils characteristic of our high-precipitation coastal forests, luvisolic soils in the Lodgepole-pine and Douglas-fir parkland, plus some dark brown and black chernozemic soils along an interior parkland transect. There will be plenty of stops along the way to observe the slides and glacial landforms which helped shape the unique landscape of BC’s south-west interior. Camping will be available at Downing Provincial Park for the evening of Oct 1st, or participants can arrange their own accommodations in the Lillooet area. Ride-sharing will be organised by the PRSSS and rental cars will be booked if necessary.
An itinerary and field trip program will be made available soon, so stay tuned. Register today to guarantee a spot; space is limited.
