Alaska possesses a profusion of native plants from streamside to mountainside. There are more then 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 Denali Highway to Denali National Park.

Also guiding 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, and other local experts. We hope you will join our exploration of this vast and beautiful land!
