Diane Stutzman: Plants and Plant Communities of the Channeled Scablands

Summary: Take a trip into the little known world of the interior Columbia Basin.  From the highway, the scablands look bleak and empty, but they are full of life.  Regional Native Americans consider the wheat fields to be a desert, and the scablands to be the breadbasket. Come and find out why.

Bio: Diane Stutzman is the owner of Desert Jewel Nursery in Spokane, which specializes in drought-adapted plants and native plants and succulents from the West and Midwest. She teaches classes in low-water landscape design and is a former BLM Botanist/Regional Data Coordinator in northeastern Washington.
