Exploring Native Plants

There's no better way to explore Washington's rich and diverse flora than to take to the mountains, deserts, or seacoast each year. Over the years WNPS members have compiled plant lists for many of our favorite sites. We offer them to you to enhance your enjoyment of these special places. Our lists are not necessarily comprehensive and are not guaranteed for accuracy, but they will add to your experience if you take them with you on your next hike. Try to find what we have found and help us improve these lists. If you have suggestions about the plant lists or would like to contribute a plant list please contact Don Schaechtel at don.safety@nwi.net

The plant lists are organized by counties. Multiple lists have been assembled through the years representing each person's experience of a given site at a given time. Some of our lists are for trails which traverse two or more counties. These lists will be found under each county.
