My Colby-Sawyer Experience

“This project brought us into the real world. It taught me a lot more than just the concept of advertising.”

175th Celebration

In 2012 the college celebrated 175 years as an institution of teaching and learning. Visit the 175th website for more information and to view photos of the events.

This is the index for the summer wildflowers. These are flowers growing in the wild, and the pictures were taken in summer condition, even though they may still be blooming into the fall. If you can't find a flower you are looking for, try the spring wildflower page. The index shows you both the common name and the scientific name. They are alphabetized by common name.
A click on the common name will take you to the plant's individual page where you will find pictures as well as descriptive information.
