Juniper Hills Desert Wildflower Hike


Register for the Juniper Hills Wildflower Hike

Join preserve staff and volunteer docents on a 2-3 mile hike through the colored soils in search of desert wildflowers! We will meet at Juniper Hills Preserve and carpool to other locations. This event is physically demanding. Please note we’ll be hiking on uneven terrain, so the footing is variable. This event is not recommended for children.

Juniper Hills serves as a vital migratory corridor for elk, antelope and other wildlife, and hosts a wide variety of wildflowers and grasses. Nestled between the Ochoco Mountains and the Maury Mountains, this remarkably diverse Central Oregon landscape is accented by ancient western juniper trees and features an exceptional array of John Day and Clarno "painted hills" formations.

Registration is required.
