Get outside for the wildflowers!

Discover a grand bouquet of California wildflowers on our properties:

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.

Rush Ranch: 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.
