Wildflowers report 3/19/22 at North Table Mountain

submitted by Daniel

The wildflowers are now blooming at The North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve in Oroville CA; however unless we get a lot more rain soon all signs indicate for a below average showing for the season. The waterfalls have very little to no water and some of the streams have already dried up. This is the lowest water flow I have ever seen at Table Mountain in all of my visits during this time of the year. The top half of many of the hills with volcanic rock mounds are mostly dried out vegetation. Although not at peak bloom yet, the dry conditions make it hard to believe there will be as many wildflowers as one may be used to seeing.

If you do decide to go visit North Table Mountain do not be surprised with little to no flow at the waterfalls and below average amount of wildflowers. On a positive note, they have redone the parking lot, entrance gate, and added some new restrooms.
