Wildflowers are as varied and beautiful as people. On this special Escape! we will explore two amazing and distinct locations: First stop is Tualatin National Wildlife Refuge where we will explore the wetland wildflowers, see who is fledging their young, and share our lunch time.
Then on to White Oak Preserve, a 30-acre private location in the foothills near Newberg. This lovingly stewarded land has distinct ecosystems and plentiful opportunities to enjoy myriad signs of spring, including rare plants and butterflies.
NatureConnect NW's Jan Shannon and Suzan Hill will lead, along with some special guests whose plant and tree knowledge will enhance your experience and your learning.
Bring your lunch, binoculars, water, weather-appropriate gear, guidebooks if you wish, and prepare to fall in love with these very special places.
Registration is limited for the Preserve due to the acreage size and landscape sensitivity for this outing. There is a $20 fee for this event. Additional donations may be made to support restoration and conservation work NatureConnect NW undertakes through volunteer engagement.
