3. Out in the Field in Orange County

Weed's Mariposa Lily

We hope you are all enjoying an extended spring in our local wilderness areas.  There are still plenty of flowers and green hills to be seen.  We posted this article about monkeyflower blooms on our website within the last month, Also Calochortus weedii var. intermedius are blooming heavily at Casper’s Park this year along the Dick Loskorn trail, and also on the East Ridge between the tops of Sun Rise and Cougar Pass.

Do you have a wildflower report or an any article about native plants in Orange County?  Or a great photo or two?  Contact Laura Camp or Rich Schilk to share your information on our website.
