Desert Wildflowers Overview 2020
March 30, 2020 - At this time the outlook for 2020 wildflowers is just average. See new reports below.
Note from the California State Parks - Your safety is a priority to us. While most of our indoor spaces, including visitor centers and museums are closed, all outdoor State Park spaces remain open and accessible to the public. Call your park in advance of your visit if you need additional details. We hope to see you in the great outdoors. As of today, non-campground outdoor areas of parks, including trails and beaches, remain open. Day-use restrooms also remain open, and visitors are advised to bring soap for handwashing and to use alcohol-based sanitizers when water is not available.

Photo tips: Most digital point-and-shoot cameras have a macro function - usually symbolized by the icon of a little flower. When you turn on that function, you allow your camera to get closer to the subject, looking into a flower for example. Or getting up close and personal with a bug.

Water Conservation Gardening. The vast majority of the water being used is wasted through evaporation, leaks, and run-off. Homeowners are not using the most efficient ways to water their landscaping and gardens. Not only are they wasting water, but they are increasing their monthly water bills. There are many ways that desert residents can have the gardens they desire while conserving precious water.
