Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve Wildflowers 3/13/17

Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve SNR reports

As of March 13th, patches of poppies have started opening on the east end of the park! It’s looking like this weekend will be the real start of the bloom, and it may last through mid to late April if the weather is cooperative.  We won’t have a solid carpet of poppies across the park, but a couple areas look like they’re about to explode into a beautiful sea of orange.

Note that it can be very windy here in the spring. Check the forecast before visiting and dress accordingly. Remember that going off of the trails to walk in the poppies could get you a ticket unless they’re growing on the official trails; it can’t be avoided in some places.
