Just in time for wildflower season, the “Wildflowers and Other Plants of the Larimer County Foothills Region” guide is here! This local field guide is geared toward the amateur and expert alike. Highlights include over 100 species of local wildflowers, grasses and woody plants, comparison pages of similar species, genus pages and a convenient size (4”x 6”).
