Wildflower Walk: McBee Grade & Horn Rapids

  • Benton City Park and Ride (map)

Please pre- register. Contact trip leader Leaders: Marilyn Lemar & Janelle Downs 509 460-8302 if you plan on attending.

Two trips in one!  We start by visiting one of our favorite sites:  McBee Grade. There’s always something to see in the spring as well as the stunning views of the Yakima Valley. The blue lupine and the yellow balsamroot complement the sun and the sky, making this a wonderful place to bring your cameras.  Our second stop is Horn Rapids Park, home to our precious Purple Sage, the steppe’s most beautiful shrub. We’ll find plenty of wildflowers scattered amongst the sage. Meet: 10:00 a.m. Benton City Park & Ride next to Conoco and I-82. Dress appropriate for the weather, bring drinks and lunch, and don’t forget your cameras.
