The South Yuba River Park Association  has scheduled Wildflower, Bird and Nature Walks for the coming year.

Wildflower Walks

The Buttermilk Bend trail is well known among locals for its spectacular explosion of wildflowers most springs. The display changes every week, so come more than once! Docents will identify the flowers and explain some of their natural history and traditional uses. Plan on 1.5 hours and 2 miles. No dogs.
