Blooming wildflowers are a sure sign that spring is here to stay. The Lassen National Forest is “Celebrating Wildflowers” the week of May 21st through May 25th, to coincide with the spring wildflower bloom.
Throughout this special week, the Forest will promote the importance of native plant conservation, with an emphasis on the biological, aesthetic, and economic value of native plants.
All this week displays depicting a variety of wildflowers common to our area will be available to the public, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at these Forest locations:
• Supervisor’s Office 2550 Riverside Dr., 257-2151
• Eagle Lake Ranger District 477-050 Eagle Lake Rd. 257-4188
• Almanor Ranger District 900 East Highway 36, Chester 258-2141
Along with the displays, a variety of free materials will be offered, including wildflower posters, magnets, frisbees, and guides to some of the local wildflower viewing spots.
