Wildflowers, Wildlife & Spectacular Landscapes

Dear Friends:
We invite you to join us to explore the wonderful wildflowers, wildlife and spectacular landscapes of Alaska in 2021!

Alaska map

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.David Wimpfheimer tour leader

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
beautiful land!

Sincerely Yours,

Linda McKendry
