The 40th Annual Silver Falls Birding and Wildflower Festival will be held on Mother’s Day Weekend, May 12-13, 2018. Join local experts for guided wildflower and birding walks, live raptor presentations, nature sketching classes, and Mother’s Day Crafts. Visit the South Falls Lodge to see an extensive native plant display and shop for native plants at our native plant sale at the South Falls Nature Store.
A more detailed schedule of events will be posted here in the weeks leading up to the event.
We hope to see you there!
Below are some photos from our 39th annual Mother’s Day Birding and Wildflower Festival. Due to cold, rainy weather, crowds were small, but everyone seemed to enjoy the activities offered.
Clue: It is still growing in the same place as you see in this postcard. The “Supervisor’s Cottage” or “Log Cabin” is no more, but you can still relax in a sunny meadow that was once our park manager’s “front lawn” in the South Falls Day-Use Area today.
