Wild About Wildflowers

Wildflowers are one of the telling signs that spring has arrived — and, in California, we’re lucky to be home to such a wide variety of native flowers, including many rare and endemic species. In fact, Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties are home to 358 species of wildflowers alone!

This a short, handy guide to just some of Sonoma Land Trust’s favorite, beautiful and unusual flowers of Sonoma County, many of which can be found on our protected preserves. #NoticeNature Includes:

  • Gorgeous pictorial of some of our favorite native flowers
