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 where?
You can sign up for our email list, come back to our website to check from time to time, or stop in our Borrego Desert Nature Center during a bloom for the lastest information.

Update 1/17/15: Our most recent long term forecast, by a professional meteorologist (with a good track record)  is that February will be wetter than normal.
