These web pages are intended for use by the biology students at Gresham
High School as they identify the wildlife & wildflowers they encounter during
their spring ecology studies. Of course, all nature afficionados are welcome
too! It is our intention in the Biology Department at Gresham High School
to present information about the natural history of the Pacific Northwest,
with an emphasis to the areas near Portland, Oregon & Vancouver, Washington.
The organisms to be seen on these pages will be those commonly seen in the Pacific
Northwest. The information found here will thus be of interest to many folks
throughout this region.
All photographs on these nature pages are copyrighted by Paul Slichter and his

The photographs on these pages are best viewed by setting your Monitor Control
Panel to 1000s of colors if possible. If your monitor is set at 256 colors,
