Antelope Valley Wildflowers 4/4/19

Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve Bloom update as of April 4, 2019:

As of April 4th, the blooming poppies are blanketing the reserve with their magnificent orange color.  Every flower and other plants that exist at the Poppy Reserve are currently blooming.  This is a great time to visit.  We are expecting the bloom to last through April.   If you are looking to find the exact location of a particular flower or plant, our staff can point you to the right trails when you arrive.

Please remember, visitors must stay on OFFICIAL TRAILS only; photos in the flowers are not allowed in the park. Walking in the poppies creates dirt patches and may result in a ticket. DO NOT walk where others have already damaged the habitat; it will compound the damage and leave a scar for years to come.

Commercial and student filming/photography requires a permit. No dogs, bikes on trails, drones, or picking flowers.

Poppies open up in mid morning, and curl up in the late afternoon/evening or if it’s cold, so check the weather forecast before arriving.  The weather can change suddenly and it is frequently windy here during the spring.  This is a DESERT grassland, so drink water often.  Note that it can be very windy here in the spring.
