Kingston Prairie

Camas Lily

Camas Lily

No, all the prairies aren’t back east on the Great Plains, or even in the Oregon high desert.  A rocky prairie with roots in Oregon’s history lies just east of the Willamette, and while its resistance to farming has saved it from being plowed under, it contains living treasures like the camas lily, a shy state bird, and hiking areas treasured by nature lovers.  The Kingston Prairie was rediscovered by students in time to save it for good, and you can visit it today.
