Wildflowers in the Gorge with Barbara Robinson
The Columbia River Gorge is well-known for its outstanding variety of wildflowers. Dramatic geological events and today’s climate factors have endowed the area with an unusual selection of native plants-desert, alpine and temperate-all occurring within relatively close proximity to one another. May 3 is the peak of the spectacular wildflower bloom in the eastern Columbia Gorge. Participants will travel the Old Scenic Highway east of Hood River between Mosier and Rowena, and take short hikes to see fields of golden Balsamroots, purple lupines, blue camas, and yellow buttercups. Mixed with them will be many other flowers – bright red Indian paint brush, white cluster lily, deep blue Larkspur, and so much more. At the Rowena Crest Overlook we will also have spectacular views of the Columbia Gorge and river. Bring your camera and join master botanist Barbara Robinson at the best time of year in this wildflower paradise! Participants will travel to field trip location in the mid Columbia River Gorge to be announced upon registration. Participants should be able to walk over uneven ground for up to two miles.
