DesertUSA Wildflower Updates 2/19/18

DesertUSA reports

February 19, 2018 – A few wildflowers are starting to bloom in Death Valley, Mojave National Preserve and Anza Borrego area. Not much rain at the point and we will need more rain soon for a good bloom this year.

Carrizo Plain National Monument reports: More than midway through the “rainy” season, and there’s been a hiccup. San Luis Obispo County, California, home to the Carrizo Plain, typically gets more than a foot of rain from October through mid-February. But this season, slightly more than one inch of precipitation has fallen in that timeframe, nowhere near enough for wildflowers.

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Reports: Rain came, with the recent rainy weather keep on the look out for possible heavy equipment grading our public roads.
