Flower Families of Mt. Ellinor

Eriophyllum lanatum (Oregon Sunshine)

Join the Natural History Society on Wednesday, July 17, for a summer hike up rocky Mt. Ellinor. We are fortunate that botanist Coca Sanchez will lead us on her annual wildflower walk for the Natural History Society. This time she will take us up a steep mountain to seek endemic wildflowers. Coca will discuss some of our most common flower families, pointing out any blooming species.


Chamaenerion angustifolium (Fireweed), Eriophyllum lanatum (Oregon Sunshine), Achillea millefolium (Yarrow)

Mt. Ellinor is known for its wildflower meadows and spectacular views from rocky ridges. We will hike from the upper trailhead to the summit, hoping to see views of Lake Cushman and the surrounding Olympic peaks.

RSVP to Eileen at JLTnatural@saveland.org for meeting time and place, what to bring, and additional information.
