PLEASE DON’T PICK THE WILDFLOWERS!!!

A recent post from Redwood National and State Parks (NPS)

Please don’t pick the wildflowers!

Some flowers, such as these trillium, take up to seven years to bloom. Picking them restarts this long process and could irreparably damage the plant. Plus, it ensures that people who hike the trails afterwards don’t get to enjoy these beautiful flowers.
