Central Oregon’s high desert country has diverse habitats from wet meadows to sage-steppe, ponderosa pine forests, and high elevation meadows and peaks. As a result, the area is home to a great number of species of native wildflowers, trees, and shrubs. Some are big, showy, and widespread. Others are tiny and easily overlooked. Join photographer and field guide author Mark Turner on a colorful, armchair exploration of some of his favorite Central Oregon plants. See rare or uncommon plants along with your showy favorites via Mark’s stunning photography.
Mark will be signing books after the talk and copies of Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest will be available for purchase at the event.
Tickets are free, but registration is required. Click the button above to register.
