The wildflowers in the Wenas
area over Memorial Day weekend are incredible. On a bad year, they're
really nice. On a good year, they're gobstoppingly stunning. Along
with bird watchers, the weekend draws several "weed watchers" (to quote Wilson
Cady), including experts from the Washington Native Plant Society.
Each year, they lead botany
field trips to such places as Manastash Ridge, Peony Meadows, and Rocky Flats.
Additionally, they create a wildflower display near the Larrison tree, with
labeled samples of flowers.
DO NOT PICK YOUR OWN FLOWERS.
View the ones in the display. If you are in the field and come across something
you don't recognize, take a picture. Check the display when you get back
