Stubbs Mountain

Stubbs Mountain, located in the Sandy River Valley in Maine, is a well-known location for species of rich-mesic forests. First explored botanically in the early 1900s, it is home to a suite of state, regional, and globally rare species. The high-pH bedrock (a calcareous slate) supports a diverse assemblage of spring ephemeral species that will be a focus of this outing. Bring a hand lens, metric ruler, lunch, water, and proper clothing and footwear. This field study is for moderate to advanced hikers—exploring the slopes of this small mountain will require us to traverse steep and rocky terrain.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
