This Wildflower Show in Ashland features over 300 species of native flowers from the volcanic Cascades, the much older Siskiyous, and the valleys in between. Free admission. Location: Ashland Community Center, 59 Winburn Way (across from Lithia Park in Ashland). Coordinated by the Siskiyou Chapter, Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO). Come meet some of our beautiful mountain flowers!
I helped collect wildflowers for the show today, and helped with the setup at the community center. It’s going to be a great show with lots of amazing flowers from throughout southern Oregon. Check it out! -Suzie
