Rowena Plateau Flora and Fauna
This outing, led by Steve Hayley, is tailored for those especially interested in an introduction to the abundant spring wildflowers of the East Columbia River Gorge. With a few short hikes, our focus will be on identification, using Jolley's Wildflowers of The Columbia Gorge (1988), and photography, for those interested. We can expect to examine 30-35 species, if past experience proves true. Also we will encounter quite a variety of birds.
Meet at Starbucks near the Hood River Bridge at 9:00 am and return by 3:30 pm. The suggested donation is $25 for families and $15 for individuals and includes a useful wildflower ID key and other creation information. With day trips, it is not necessary to send us your donation; just bring it the day of the outing.
