What’s that Flower I Saw?

What's that Wildflower poster 2.5Are you ready for Spring?  …We are!

As our wildflowers begin to bloom, stop by the South Falls Lodge and see what colorful residents you might find while on the trails.  Park Interpreter, Matt Palmquist, created this awesome poster to help you learn our wildflowers while relaxing in the Lodge’s Main Hall with your warm drinks.

Ready… Set… Go find our wonderful wildflowers!

Spring has Sprung!

Thanks to Friends of Silver Falls Park Interpreter, Matt Palmquist, for the great pictures with his new macro picture app – meaning there will be many more pictures to come!
