Yakima Valley Community College, in collaboration with the Yakima Area Arboretum, presents Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest, an illustrated lecture by Mark Turner. Admission is free and open to the community.

The presentation takes place on April 19, 2013 at 7:00pm in Kendall Hall Auditorium.

The area around Yakima in south-central Washington bursts into bloom with a profusion of wildflowers each spring. Hillsides are colored golden with balsamroot, pink with phlox, and dotted with white serviceberries. Looking even closer you’ll find wild onions, violets, milkvetch, lupines, paintbrush, and hundreds more species.  Photographer Mark Turner will share a selection of his favorite flowers from the region, and  will give hints about where to find and enjoy them.
