    Special thanks to the Botanic Park for making the park available to us!
    When Lulie Crawford was eight years old, she came to the Yampa Valley in 1876 with her family from Missouri. She loved to be outside exploring and finding wildflowers. From these experiences, Lulie developed a love of the natural beauty of the Steamboat Springs area and its wildflowers, which she captured in her watercolor paintings.
