Flora of the Western Utah Deserts.

The Great Basin portion of western Utah was covered by Lake Bonneville, which first formed over 30,000 years ago. This field trip will explore some of the habitats (from saline lake playas to montane forests) that have formed since the retreat of the Pleistocene lakes. We will stop at a number of sites in Tooele County from the vicinity of the Great Salt Lake south to Rush Lake and Vernon. A hand lens will be useful for aid in identification of specimens seen on the trip. The van will leave leave at 9:30 am, return around 5:00 pm, and lunch will be provided. Temperatures could be in the high 90s with clear cunny skies, participants should bring sun block and head protection.
