Mile marker 20, Highway 130 (Park at “Jack’s Place” – old gas station store – by Porter Lake)
Join us as we hike and explore native plants and the release site for the Wyoming Toad.
From the highway we will hike to the top of Table Mountain (about 4 miles round trip, moderate to strenuous hike) and look at native plants and learn about the release site for the critically endangered Wyoming Toad. Hike is relatively flat for about 1.5 miles then we gradually begin to ascend the southwest side of Table Mountain with the steepest pitch coming in the last few hundred feet before the top. Total elevation gain is about 300′.

  1. On behalf of my Ark Horticulture students we were delighted that our leeks were chosen “Judge’s Choice Outstanding Exhibit in Open Garden at this year’s Fair. We have made you all a lovely thank you card but I am nervous about mailing it as it’s made on our own homemade paper and is rather fragile. May we drop it off somewhere convenient before your next meeting?
    THANKS!!
    Susan (760-2140 or 742-6641 at the Ark)

  2. Looking forward to attending my first meeting this February (was out of town for January’s meeting) and joining. I really just got into gardening semi-seriously in Laramie last year.

  3. Hello, Jai. Thanks for your suggestion. The LGC no longer does public garden tours, and the Garden Gem program (in conjunction with the Boomerang and other groups in town) is only applicable to yard spaces that can be viewed from the sidewalk/road by passersby.
