Wildflowers, Wildlife & Spectacular Landscapes
For Friends and Members
Pacific Horticulture Society
with Betchart Expeditions Inc
June 27-July 7, 2021
We invite you to join us to explore the wonderful
wildflowers, wildlife and spectacular landscapes
of Alaska in 2021!
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 scenic Parks Highway to Denali National Park.
We will hike near Hatcher Pass, and see stately forests,
botanic gardens, scenic streamside walks teeming with
flowers, and dwarf tundra plants on the mountain tops.
We'll explore Denali National Park, the finest park and
wildlife preserve in Alaska, and then visit Fairbanks in
the interior of Alaska.
Leading this expedition will be David Wimpfheimer,
an excellent naturalist and leader of many Betchart
Alaska expeditions, and John Burns, a botanist
with years of Alaska expertise Escorting the tour
will be celebrated garden
photographer Saxon Holt.
We hope you will join our
exploration of this vast and
