Native Plant Garden

Just outside of the Welcome Center the Native Plant Garden teaches us about the beauty and fragility of desert flora.

 
Native Plant Garden at Smith Rock State ParkWith a range of native plants, wild grasses to colorful Salvia and Paint Brush, there’s lots to see–especially at springtime.

Erosion control is huge at Smith Rock. We get so little water–less than 8 inches a year on average.

We can all help by staying on the trails to preserve key ecosystems in the park.
