Oregon Wildflowers: Camissia Natural Area 5/8/17

Oregon Wildflowers has a new report for Camissia Natural Area

What a lovely, accessible walk that is good for children and those with mobility impairments, as long as you stay on loop trail. Well-maintained boardwalk over boggy areas keeps you out of water and protects native plant habitat. Camas, rosy plectoris, buttercup, Oregon grape, blackberries, thimbleberries, Dutchmans breeches, and bedstraw were in bloom or just past peak bloom. Close to bloom were lupines, strawberries, and wild ginger. Trailhead is not well-marked, with limited parking and no ADA accessbile parking available. Must go down Walnut Street to dead end and get out of car before you can see trailhead.
