Where to catch a last glimpse of this year's wildflower bloom on the Palos Verdes Peninsula
Catalina Island.” More visitors have walked the trails this season, but the area was spared the throngs of people that flocked to areas like the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve or Riverside’s Diamond Valley Lake, where officials closed off a section of a popular trail to prevent the further trampling of blooms. Advertisement“We haven’t had the huge social media issue that the desert has had bringing droves and droves of people to trample through the hills,” Mohan said.• Related Story:These are the best wildflower spots in Southern CaliforniaEven without the social media buzz attracting hoards of flower enthusiasts looking for an Instagram-perfect shot, conservancy staff and volunteers noticed some of the same issues that cropped up in more popular wildflower hot spots. “We definitely had incidents of people coming to pick flowers or, when walking, picking flowers, which is certainly incredibly disappointing and damaging to the preserves,” said Andrea Vona, the conservancy’s executive director. She added that although the conservancy didn’t have the same magnitude of problems as locations elsewhere, any damage can make a lasting impression on the surrounding habitat. The conservancy also offers nature walks and demonstrations. More information and a schedule of events can be found at pvplc.org. (The Daily Breeze)Apr 27, 2017
Ventura County super bloom: 'Get out there soon'
Island.In San Diego County, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park has a wildflower hotline set up for people to call; and huge crowds have converged on the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve in Lancaster.Locally, more visitors have caused fewer issues, since the bloom isn’t hyper-focused on any one location.“Here it is interspersed throughout the whole Santa Monica Mountains,” said Craig Sap, superintendent for the Angeles district of California State Parks.He was in Point Mugu and Leo Carrillo state parks over the past week, finding chocolate lilies, poppies, lupines and blue dicks in bloom.As far as the variety of wildflowers, this is the best Sap has seen in recent years.“Right now, we're at the perfect moment for giant coreopsis,” he said of the bright yellow flowering plant that favors some of the steep hillsides near the coast.See more:Ani Yeremian, a native Southern Californian, recently hiked in the Lake Elsinore area in Riverside County, “which was beautiful.”“But it feels like it’s more here,” she said, standing at the foot of the Ray Miller Trail in Point Mugu State Park.That could be because of a fire that tore through the parkland four years ago.In May 2013, the Springs Fire swept over the canyons, leaving little but scorched ground in its wake.“The kind of bloom that you’re seeing right now we generally see the year after a fire,” Algiers said.While some flowers bloomed earlier, the drought delayed much of the response. “So several years later, you’re seeing a bloom that you would expect to see the year after a fire,” Algiers said.“It’s pretty amazing,” he said, looking up at the tall golden hill behind him.img itemprop="url" src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/5fc7b97f74d2745ccd915a3239b184e6e5710cd8/c=454-0-3802-2517&r=x408&c=540x405/local/-/media/2017/03/30/Camarillo/Camarillo/636264356864486059-Wildflowers-in-bloom-3.jpg" alt="Joseph Algiers, restoration ecologist with the Santa" width="540" height="405" data-mycapture-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/media/2017/03/30/Camarillo/Camarillo/636264356864486059-Wildflowers-in-bloom-3.jpg" data-mycapture-sm-src="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/...

Where to see the best wildflower shows around Los Angeles
Park entrances along Highway 1 are about 15 miles south of Oxnard.Info: Point Mugu State ParkNorthThe Antelope Valley California State Poppy Reserve in Lancaster wasn't expecting much this wildflower season. The surprise came in mid-March when pockets of poppies unfurled in their golden glory.A little more rain and moderate temperatures kept everything in balance. Now, intense streaks of orange can be seen on the high desert hillsides on the reserve's eastern side. You can walk right up to them (but not through them, please) on a 1.5-mile hike to Vista Point.Colors become more intense the closer you get, and look too for soft purple hillsides (lacy phacelia) and patches of yellow (goldfields). The bloom is expected to last until mid-April.The reserve recommends visiting during the week. Swarms of weekend visitors have caused parking lots to temporarily close and traffic jams at the entrance on Lancaster Road. And don’t bring your dog; they’re not allowed.To avoid the crush, stop alongside nearby roads where there are brilliant displays too. Just take care to pull off the shoulder and not impede traffic. One more tip: Take San Francisquito Canyon instead of Highway 14 as you head to Lancaster. It’s a road through greened-up hills that passes by Lake Elizabeth.Info: Antelope Valley California State Poppy Reserve,15101 Lancaster Rd, Lancaster; (661) 724-1180SoutheastEvery week in spring, the Wild Flower Hotline run by the Theodore Payne Foundation in Sun Valley points wildflower lovers to good viewing places.Recent recommendations have included Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park in San Juan Capistrano, which has California poppies but also varieties of lupine, bright red coastal paintbrush and big white swords of chaparral yucca. The place to see it all is the East Ridge Trail.Info:Caspers Wilderness Park, 33401 Ortega Highway, San Juan Capistrano; (949) 923-2210Poppies are showy now in other parts of Orange County too: Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore (very near Interstate 15) and Weir and Santiago canyons.You can access the Wild Flower Hotline online or by calling (818) 768-1802, Ext. 7.ALSOThanks to abundant snow, the West can expect a long, rollicking river rafting seasonHere's where to see the magnificent waterfalls that have returned to SoCal after the big rainsEverything's coming up primroses and poppies and ranunculuses, but these blooms won't last much longerThe Netherlands' original pop-up tulip garden opens.
