Another resource for the Columbia Basin is: "Watchable Wildflowers - A Columbia Basin Guide". Ten Watchable Wildflower sites were selected to represent the diversity of environments found throughout the Basin. At each site, the legend indicates which specific plant communities are found there. Each site also features directions and a map, a description of the natural history of the area and photos. Published by BLM, this guide is out of print but pdf's are available at the above link.
