A few highlights from Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh

On the last day of May we spent the day out at Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh. It’s always breathtaking, but we’ve never quite been able to hit it at the right time to see the famous Camas lilies at their peak. This trip was about as close as we’ve come so far though.

The marsh was loaded with birds as it usually is this time of the year. Here are a few highlights we were able to get close to.
