Audubon Birding Day: Wildflowers at Catherine Creek

Catherine Creek at the right time of the year is one of the wonders of the world. The wildflowers are just magnificent! We’ll be looking for Yellow Fritillary, Oneflower Broomrape, Nuttall’s Larkspur, Pacific Hound’s Tongue, Checker and Glacier Lily, Poet’s Shooting Star, and a variety of saxifrages and lomatiums.

Then we will move over to the Deschutes River downstream from Sherar’s Bridge and check the wildflowers there (an hour’s drive). This early date is also great for the small Sheridan’s Green Hairstreak which should be out in full force. And, of course, we will also look for birds while we are out there!

You will drive yourself. Bring lunch and dress for the weather. Meet at 6:30 a.m. at the garden center entrance of the Fred Meyer at the Gateway Transit Center at 45.5309, -122.5618.

Trip limited to 10 participants.
