Take a wildflower walk near Mount St. Helens April 25

If you want to celebrate Earth Day, you could take a wildflower appreciation walk Saturday at Mount St. Helens Visitor Center and Seaquest State Park.

The activities will start with a short class to introduce common native wildflowers blooming in the area. Naturalists will then help visitors spot and identify wildflowers blooming along the 3/4-mile wetland trail at the visitor center, followed by a hike on some of the trails at nearby Seaquest State Park, according to a Washington State Parks news release.

Organizers recommend participants bring a lunch (there are no food vendors on site), dress appropriately for weather conditions and bring a camera, if desired.

The cost is $5 for adults and $2.50 for children ages 7-17. A Discover Pass is not required to park at the visitor center parking lot.

The guided nature walk is from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the visitor center, 3029 Spirit Lake Highway, Castle Rock.

For more information about the walk, contact Tina Linch at 360-274-0962 or tina.linch@parks.wa.gov.
