Spring means wildflowers, and it also means the return of outdoor festivals. So why not combine both into a single package? Mount Pisgah is a must-visit for all Eugene nature lovers, as you will know if you’ve read our 7 Reasons to Love Springtime in Eugene post. But it’s also home to several of the area’s most beloved festivals, also including a Fall Mushroom Festival.
300 to 400 wildflower species will be on display. That’s a lot of flowers. Once you’ve become thoroughly intoxicated by the majesty of the spring, you can top it off with food from numerous area vendors and a full schedule of some of Eugene’s most popular musical acts. Local artisans will display their crafts, and numerous plants will be available for sale to spice up your living quarters.
The event is great for kids too, with nature crafts, facepainting, and microscopes, and nature walks with expert volunteer guides. Be there or be square, and click here for more details.
