Straub Environmental Center educators and members of the Willamette Valley Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon will lead an all-day hike to view the wildflowers of Anvil Lake, in the Mount Hood National Forest. This 2.6-mile roundtrip hike (with light elevation gain) passes through old-growth forest, the beautiful Black Wolf Meadows, and ends at a secluded lake. Discover moisture-loving wildflowers such as bog laurel and explorer’s gentian and taste wild huckleberries! Bring a sack lunch, water, and appropriate foot gear and clothing.
Location: Meet in the parking lot at the Willamette Heritage Center (1313 Mill St. SE) at 9:00 am. The group will depart in a passenger van at 9:15.
Cost: $5 for Native Plant Society of Oregon members and $10 for non-members. Space is limited to ten participants ages 12-adult. Pre-registration is required. Cash or check accepted.
