Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve
While we don't have any large, flower farms left in Los Angeles County, we do have a wonderful, natural place to see spring wildflowers and now is the time to see the beautiful California poppies and other wildflowers in the Antelope Valley at the Poppy Reserve. Due to the winter rains, this year is blooming pretty well. However, don't wait too long since they won't last, with wildflowers blooming from about March through May, with peak viewing time in mid-April.
You can call the Wildflower Hotline for basic information at (661) 724-1180, or check out the site for more information, http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=627.
