    In addition to its beauty, the camas plant was an essential food source for the Atfalati band of the Kalapuya Indians, the first people to live in Washington County. After non-native plants were removed in Dirksen Nature Park the camas patch came back in full display. City staff believe this patch of bulbs has been around for hundreds of years but is just now able to flourish thanks to the restoration work. Plan to see for yourself: the bulbs typically bloom around Mother's Day.
