Jepson Prairie Preserve is one of California’s best remaining examples of a vernal pool ecosystem and native grassland prairie. Dry and dormant most of the year, the prairie is transformed by winter rains into a tapestry of stunning colors, and its vast vernal pools host California tiger salamanders, fairy shrimp, and a rich diversity of rare aquatic life. Trained docents will teach participants about vernal pool ecosystems and the aquatic invertebrate and flowering plants that the pools support. Beautiful wildflowers, excellent birdwatching, and occasional appearances by the endangered Delta green ground beetle make these tours a wonderful experience for all ages and interests! Over 96% of California’s original vernal pool habitat has vanished. But this 1,566-acre park is part of over 4,000 acres of adjacent vernal pool habitat, adding up to one of the largest remaining protections in the state!
