Wildflower program held

The Tahoe Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin, will present a free special evening program on “Wildflowers of the Tahoe Sierra” on July 12. The presentation will begin at 8:30 p.m. at the Lake of the Sky Amphitheater, next to the Visitor Center on State Route 89.

Author and photographer Laird Blackwell will present a colorful slide program highlighting photos from his books “Wildflowers of the Tahoe Sierra” and “Wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada and the Central Valley.” His knowledge is comprehensive and deep and his program will not only inform but entertain and inspire people to truly know the flowers of the Tahoe Sierra.

Blackwell, who has a Ph.D. from Stanford University, lived and studied in the Sierra Nevada for more than 20 years. He is a professor and chairman of humanities at Sierra Nevada College, where he teaches courses in ecology, phycology, literature and mythology. He considers wildflowers to be nature’s poetry, offering a path into the deeper layers of people’s psyches.

Blackwell’s books will be available for purchase at the program and he will be glad to sign them.
