Wildflower Walk: Saddle Mountain

  • Van Giesen Park and Ride by Bypass Highway Van Giesen Street Richland, WA, 99354 United States (map)

One of our favorite walks, Saddle Mountain, promises all that the Columbia Basin has to offer:  Blue Bells and Pink-Violet Shooting Stars in profusion! The little Yellow Bells of spring will be ringing on the slopes.  

Once a national wildlife refuge itself, Saddle Mountain National Wildlife Refuge still exists, but as part of the much larger Hanford Reach National Monument.  It is the crowning jewel in the crown of the Hanford Reach National Monument. This is a part of our national heritage. Please come join us for another exceptional wildflower experience on the mountain this year!

Meet: 9:00 a.m. Van Giesen Park & Ride. This is a long day: dress appropriately for the weather, bring lunch and snacks, and don’t forget your cameras.  Please contact trip leader Gretchen Garber at if you plan on attending.
