Suksdorfia Chapter

Named for famed botanist Wilhelm Suksdorf, the Suksdorfia chapter roams the hills and trails of ​the ​Columbia ​River ​Gorge during its eight to ten annual wildflower hikes, starting as soon as the grass widows peak forth. With elevations from near sea-level to tree​ ​line, the area boasts a long wildflower season with a diverse range of blooms over six months.

The chapter also gathers for several informative, entertaining ​presentations​ each year, and supports occasional small, local conservation, and educational efforts.
