We will be there in early June this year. Any suggestions for special places to see or extra special things to do during this time?
June is the very best time to visit the Zumualt Preserve, the vast prairielands owned by The Nature Conservancy in northeastern Oregon. Along with native wildflower species, you’ll see raptors of all kinds and it is sanctuary for elk and wolves, too. June is also when the Grande Ronde River is really flowing, offering a great ride for anyone who wants to adventure through some of the most wild and scenic places in all of Oregon.
