Plants and wildflowers add to the beauty of our foothills and improve the air and water quality, enrich and maintain the soil, sustain wildlife and provide humans with food and medicine.
We hope this website enhances your enjoyment of our local wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees. Learning their names brings a sense of familiarity that will develop as you continue to visit the Wenatchee Foothills and watch the progression of plants through the seasons. We hope that your growing appreciation of these plants will encourage you to preserve them for future generations.
Resist the impulse to pick these beautiful wildflowers! Picking a wildflower prevents the next hiker from enjoying the same beauty. It also reduces the plant’s chance for survival, impacting the insects and animals that rely on it for food and shelter. Why not leave them for everyone to enjoy?
