Rancho del Oso Nature and History Center’s Wildflower Weekend

May 24, 2016 @ 8:00 am

Spring has arrived in the Waddell Valley! Come and see what’s in bloom during the annual Rancho del Oso Wildflower Weekend. View the flowers on display at the Nature and History Center and then visit them along the park’s scenic trails. You’ll see buttercups, shooting stars and western wake robin included in this annual exhibit of over fifty native plants in flower and several non-native species labeled and grouped by habitat. Naturalist led wildflower walks at 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday enable you to see the blooms in their natural setting.

Rancho Del Oso Nature and History Center is located 17 miles north of Santa Cruz at 3600 Highway 1, Davenport, CA 95017. From Santa Cruz, turn right just before the Waddell Creek Bridge at the sign for Rancho Del Oso Nature and History Center. From Half Moon Bay take Highway One south 30 miles and turn left after the Waddell Creek Bridge (2.6 miles south of Año Nuevo State Reserve).

For more information call (831) 427-2288.
