Alaska Expedition: Wildflowers, Wildlife & Spectacular Landscapes

Alaska Expedition: Wildflowers, Wildlife & Spectacular Landscapes

We invite you to join us to explore and photograph the wonderful wildflowers, wildlife and spectacular landscapes of Alaska in 2023!

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.

Leading this expedition will be David Wimpfheimer, an excellent naturalist and leader of many Betchart Alaska expeditions. Co-leading will be Pacific Horticulture Board member and celebrated garden photographer, Saxon Holt. Saxon will lead several end-of-day gatherings to review photos and provide tips.
