"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"St. Johns-wort"
The River "S" Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge has a 4.2 mile auto tour route and 1.5 mile seasonal hiking trail. The auto tour is an excellent way to see the Refuge. A pair of binoculars is a must and a camera makes it even more fun !!!

According to C.P. Lyons in Wildflowers of Washington (2nd edition, 1999, Lone Pine Field Guide), the name "St. John's-wort" refers to St. John the Baptist's Day - June 24 - when the plant was first said to bloom. Various spellings of the plant are seen, from St. John's-wort, St. John's Wort, to St. Johnswort.

Also known as "Klamath Weed".

The following is a collection of images taken of the St. Johns-wort. Also link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildlife, and flowers taken each day.
