If you are running late, head north to find us.

Each June, Friends and neighbors meet in the northern half of Monument Valley Park to enjoy a variety of wildflowers blooming in the Park.  Carey Harrington, a Colorado Native Plant Master, leads our walks and provides interesting information on each of the wildflowers that she identifies.



















Below you will find a list of wildflowers that the group saw on a past outing.
