Get outside for the wildflowers!
Discover a grand bouquet of California wildflowers on our
Jepson Prairie: Beautiful
and aptly-named goldfields are making their show. Head to the north end of the
docent triangle for bright downingias. Other flowers to look for are bright
pink vernal pool owl's clover and delicate pink flax-flowered linanthus.
Lynch Canyon: Find lots of blue-eyed grass
(the petals are purple!) on Middle Valley and Prairie Ridge Trails. Look for
yellow and purple coast iris, bright orange sticky monkey flower, white yarrow,
buttercups, and bright white woodland star.
Rockville Trails: Sticky and seep monkey
flower, California poppy, purple sannicle and purple larkspur, yarrow, meadow
foam, Ithuriels spears, bi-color lupine, and more goldfields.
Golden California poppies are a welcome sight, as is Queen Anne's lace, bright
blue lupine, and purple and white wild radish.
Thanks to docents Steven Chun, Doug Wirtz, Lawrence Sander, Gayle
Vaughn, and Russell Huddleston for their reporting.
