Flowers are Mother Nature's way of decorating fields, attracting pollinators, and luring botanists into butterfly pranks. Forage for flora with today's Groupon: for $28, you get a Silver Star mountain wildflower tour for two from Outdoor Discoveries (a $56 value, tax included).
At Outdoor Discoveries, veteran naturalist Roseanne Van Ee guides excursionists across picturesque landscapes while imparting her extensive knowledge of local flora and wildlife. During the mountain wildflower tour, explorers skip through wildflower meadows, meander about berry patches, and cartwheel past an abandoned silver mine. Tours traverse the Monashee Mountains, where Roseanne guides floral seekers on a downward journey through subalpine mountain terrain. The nature guru illuminates the history of the mountain while explaining the geology and ecology of the region. Meanwhile, trailblazers can sate stomachs and pocket-sized labradoodles with provided refreshments, all while Roseanne points out the stunning wildflowers and wildlife. Buyers can also opt to ascend the mountain via scenic chairlift; tickets are available on-site if desired and cost an additional $10 for adults, $9 for youth and seniors, and $7 for children.
