Everyone wants to know...
Will this be a good
wildflower year in Anza-Borrego?
We don’t know for
sure yet, but the winter rains so far are setting us up for a
good springtime wildflower season. Historically, the peak
bloom is approximately March 15, give or take two weeks.
However, each year is different, depending on the weather. It
can be as early as February or as late as April.
How will I
know what's blooming and where?
for our email list, check the
flower update page on our website from time to time, or
stop in our Borrego Desert Nature Center during a bloom for
the lastest info.
1/28/15: Rain this week increases the chance that
this will be the best flower year out of the past several.
Plants are starting to poke through the ground in the
Borrego Valley. Flowers are still several weeks out.
