NATIVE PLANTS -- Late May is prime time for some of the loveliest wildflowers at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge.
Join Northeastern Washington Native Plant Society veteran Sylvia Eberspecher for a leisurely 2-hour walk to learn about some of the wildflowers, trees and shrubs.
She will point out distinguishing features of common plants that can be confused with each other, and share a few stories of how some plants got their names.
A former Master Gardener and garden center employee, Sylvia will point out some native plants that grow well in urban gardens. Although scientific plant names will be given, you don’t need to know Latin or memorize botany terms to enjoy this trip. Sylvia will bring her favorite identification books and explain what is particularly good about each one, from beginner to advanced.
Muffins and bottled water are provided. Meet at 10 a.m. by the Turnbull Headquarters buildings.
For starters, here is a plant list.
