A sign posted just below the plant read:

Also on the sign were two logos. One was for "Oregon State Parks." The second was for "Friends of Shore Acres."

The leafs of the Bear's Breeches (Acanthus mollis) were green with a complex shape and large for such a compact plant.

The flowers each resembled a cartoon person wearing a purple hat.
