After a very cool April, the whole community seems to be out and about, on foot, on bikes & Lime Bikes, enjoying the weather and the local plant community bursting into leaf and bloom. It's a great time to check out the spring ephemeral wildflowers in classic spots like the Mulholland Wildflower Preserve, Cornell's Mundy Wildflower Garden, or one of our awesome state parks. For a tour with a knowledgeable guide, check out these "Birds and Blossoms Walks" offered throughout the month.
Trillium are among the many wildflowers blooming now
