Wildflower Season is Almost Here! Hotline Open March 5

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Wildflower season is about to begin, and to keep apprised of where you can see what around Southern and even Central California (for you road trippers) the Theodore Payne Foundation will once again run their Wildflower Hotline.

From March 5th to May you can call (818) 768-3533 to hear a recorded message narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Joe Spano (Hill Street Blues, Apollo 13, NYPD Blue) that is updated every Thursday evening offering details about more than 90 wildflower sites. You can also use the Theodore Payne Foundation's website to find spots to check out the beautiful blooms.

Some of our favorite places to see wildflowers include Charmlee Wildnerness Park (where you can learn how to identify the flowers), Los Angeles State Historic Park, and the Poppy Reserve.
