Southern California Wildflower Reports 4/5/19

Theodore Payne posted its newest wildflower report. 

The Hotline is meant to help people enjoy the unique and beautiful nature of Southern California, without diminishing that resource in years to come. We encourage people to treat these floral treasures with the respect due to all living organisms.

Flower viewing etiquette is simple:

  • Stay on the paths
  • Stand on bare ground
  • Leave the flowers unharmed

This week’s update includes the following locations:
