The more than 1,000 redbud trees we’ve planted with the help of volunteers and partners along Pittsburgh’s North Shore and other spots in view of downtown’s rivers were spectacular this year! See some gorgeous images. The beautiful pink blooms are fading and the heart-shaped leaves have emerged.

Get Spring Background Images

Spring-blooming trout lilies are one of several wildflowers found at Raccoon Creek State Park’s Wildflower Reserve in Beaver County, one of 11 state parks WPC helped establish. 

New trout lilies grow when ants scatter the seeds, or underground rootstalks spread. Some colonies are as old as 300 years! Its name comes from its mottled leaves, which resemble a brook trout's markings. 

Select spring images for your desktop and virtual backgrounds through June 20.
