The Darlingtonia Preserve is located just off Highway 101, north of the town of Florence on the Southern Oregon Coast. The tiny park is centered on a peat bog that hosts an unusual concentration of carnivorous California pitcher plant, or cobra lily- known by the botanical name Darlingtonia Californica. The 18-acre preserve is the only Oregon state park dedicated to the protection of a single plant species.
Not much to see but it's still interesting enough to stop. There's a large wooden deck you can walk on above the plants. None are close enough to really appreciate unless you have a camera and a long lens like I had. There was also a noticeable lack of insects, making the chance of watching them feed remote.
