$7.95
Special Order

Description


The Rocky Mountains cover a remarkable extent of land, stretching from Alaska all the way south to New Mexico. At various points along this mighty range are rich pine forests filled with the songs Hermit Thrushes, high-altitude meadows with Alpine Forget-me-not and hardy clusters of heather, and montane rivers bordered by conifers and alders. The iconic Glacier Lily blooms each spring just as the snow recedes. Studying plants in the Rockies is both fascinating and inspiring. For many, plants represent a major aspect of a landscape's character, so it helps to get acquainted with the most representative species. You can do this with the portable reference Rocky Mountain Trees & Wildflowers, which features beautiful illustrations of 140 common and familiar trees, shrubs, and wildflowers as well as a map showing over 20 botanical sanctuaries and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is an excellent companion for educators, learners, naturalists, botanists, and adventurers who wish to forge deeper and more meaningful connections with the land through its plant life. Made in the USA.
