Antelope Valley Update 2/16/19

Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association has a new report for 2/16/18

Antelope Valley California Poppy ReserveThe Joshua trees in front of the visitor center are starting to get their first buds. Other plants that are starting to bloom are: Filaree,Slender Keel Fruit, and Forget-me-nots

Arthur B.  Ripley Desert Woodland State ParkThe Joshua trees are producing their first buds. The snow in the Tehachapi Mountains is a wonderful backdrop for the Joshua and Juniper trees. It was hard to find a place to get a photo of the snow and mountains without wind turbines and solar panels. Ripley was one of the best places to do just that.

See photos for both the above as well as reports on Horned Larks and Burrowing Owls at Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association
