Jepson Prarie Wildflower Walks

Jepson Prairie Preserve is one of California’s best remaining examples of a vernal pool ecosystem and native grassland prairie. Dry and dormant most of the year, the prairie is transformed by winter rains into a tapestry of stunning colors, and its vernal pools host a rich diversity of rare aquatic life. Enjoy an easy guided walk which may include portions of the Preserve that are only accessible with a Jepson Prairie docent. Learn about vernal pools and see the aquatic invertebrate and flowering plants that depend on them. Volunteer docents offer these tours every Saturday and Sunday at 10am, March 11 through May 14 (Mother’s Day).

COST: A donation is requested.

REGISTRATION: If your group is 5 or less, no RSVP is necessary. If your group is 6 or more, RSVP to Kate Mawdsley at or 530-758-5093.
