The flowers of Jepson Prairie
by Rick Bacigalupi on May 03, 2011
Follow along on a docent-led walk among the wildflowers of Solano County’s Jepson Prairie, one of the best remaining examples of vernal pool habitats, remarkable seasonal wetlands that once dotted the Central Valley. The pools swell with winter rains and then dry through summer and fall. As they do, a parade of different wildflowers appear along their edges.
