Discover the spring beauty of your Regional Parks by joining our wildflower walks on Saturdays from March 21-April 25. The theme of this walk at Crane Creek Regional Park is "Native Magic and Cures." Learn about some of the native uses of plants in this park and how they were used to cure various ills, including addiction to opium.

Our annual wildflower walks are free and led by volunteer Phil Dean, a Master Gardener who will identify native plants, discuss the drought's impact on this year's flowers, and share stories specific to the flora of each park. Most walks start at 10:00AM, last about two hours and proceed at an easy pace. Meet in the Highway 12 parking lot for a prompt 10:00AM departure. Parking is $7 or free for Regional Parks members. We'll hike in light rain, but heavy rain cancels.
