Come to “Native Plant Appreciation Day” at the McNary Wildlife Refuge in Burbank. The event is free to the public. It offers an opportunity for families and friends to come together to celebrate the amazing varieties of wildflowers that we have here in the Columbia Basin.

There will plenty of activities for children and adults alike, including making flower buttons, dissecting plants, art projects, and more. There are two slideshows on wildflowers as well as nature walks and information on native plants. We will be offering a guided wildflower walk of the “Two Sisters”. The event starts at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 1:00 p.m. Be there early to sign up for our popular van tour to the Two Sisters, leaving at 11:30 a.m.

Place: McNary Wildlife Refuge, 64 Maple Street, Burbank, WA 99323, phone: 509-546-8300. For more information contact Denise McIntruff, Visitor Services, at denise_mcinturff@fws.gov. Please mark your calendars for a fun day of exploration, and hopefully an appreciation of the jewels that our special shrub steppe puts at our feet in the spring.
