As part of Native Plant Awareness Week, Rick Shory, Melanie Nead, and Brenda Hamilton will lead a walk to explore native wildflowers at Cooper Mountain Nature Park. Rick Shory has worked throughout the West as a Forest Service botanist and will share wildflower insights during this outing. The hike will wind through prairies, forest, and oak woodlands, including nicely restored oak savannah habitat. If the sky is clear, you can see expansive views of the Tualatin Valley and Chehalem hills between wildflower sightings.
Long sleeves and pants are strongly recommended for this hike, as there is extensive poison oak in this park. Please also note that pets aren’t allowed in the park. To sign up, contact Brenda Hamilton at email@example.com or 510-205-5849.
