While visiting the area, we stopped in. We've been here a few times before. Not overly exciting, but interesting. They done a nice job building the walkway into this plant area.

Have visited this site several times to share with visiting family. It is just off the road and a very short walk to see the plants. We have only seen it in winter so the flowers weren’t in bloom, but the rest of the plants...More

Fun little Forest to explore. Plants that are rare and fun to read about their exclusivity to Oregon and the coastal region.

Very cool plants and short trail to see them. It is fun because the trail takes you winding through the woods

What a cool little place! The park was created to protect this one species of plant. Think Venus Fly Trap only bigger! Pretty amazing when you think about it. Nice boardwalk thru the park.

This is a very small site featuring a huge grove of insectivorous pitcher plants. This is a mile or two north of town where the speed limit increases on Hwy 101, so it is all too easy to zoom past. Look for the small brown...More

If you are into botany it is worth checking out this site along the Oregon coast. It is a short walk to see the Pitcher Plants and very well kept. There are a few picnic benches near by if you wanted to stick around.

This is easily overlooked, it doesn't get much attention. Just off of 101 it is easy to get to. If you are in the area, you really ought to take a few minutes to see this most unusual pant. Just a short walk, and read...More

The shape of these particular plants is interesting as they look like a cobra. The only place where they grow. It is not large but a ideal leg stretching stopover. You could take a picnic luch as there are a couple of tables there.

We had never seen pitcher plants growing in their natural environment and we were surprised at the massive numbers of plants we saw at this site. We remembered to use insect repellent when leaving the car, so we were not bothered by any biting insects....More
