The Wildflowers of Southern California
Did you know SoCal has amazing wildflower fields every spring? The Wildflower Hotline will report the best spots for viewing wildflowers. 818-768-3533
See where the Golden State gets it's name. The Poppy Reserve in Lancaster is one of the best places to see Golden Poppies.
The Poppy Festival is April 25-26 in Lancaster.
Joshua Tree National Park is another good place for viewing. Check out the 29 Palms/Oasis Visitor Center. There is a paved walkway behind the building for little ones to run. The West entrance has another visitor's center and plenty of places to eat. The ranger station gives you a good map and can tell you where to find wildflowers.
