Hike with a Naturalist
in Trione-Annadel State Park

Mar 1, 2018


Larkspur Delphinium GlaucomDiscovering what wildflowers are popping out along the trails – everything from little tiny ground-hugging flowers to bushes and trees – a rainbow of colors. Join Volunteer Interpretive Naturalist John Lynch up Warren P. Richardson Trail and up towards Lake Ilsanjo – total distance and specific trails may be dependent on how much we stop and look and identify flowers and what is blooming and where. Along the route, John will also discuss uses of the local plants. The October 2017 Nun’s Fire burned approximately 60% of Trione-Annadel SP. Some areas along this hike will be at the edges of The Burn – we might see wildflowers that only bloom after a fire, or have not bloomed here for many years, or are blooming more profusely as a result of the fire. Hike returns to same parking area about 1 PM.

An example of what we might see: Calypso Orchid, Mission Bells, Milkmaids, CA Buttercups, Larkspur, Meadowfoam …. And more!

Wear hiking shoes, layers appropriate for weather; bring water and a snack. Some trails are rocky and uneven. HEAVY RAIN CANCELS.
