BLM, Native Plant Society Host Fort Ord Wildflower Tour

The Bureau of Land Management and the California Native Plant Society will be co-hosting a free wildflower tour on Sunday, March 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Fort Ord National Monument.

Participants will carpool from the parking lot on Lightfighter Drive, near the intersection of California State Route 1, in Seaside.

Space is limited to 30 participants for the popular hike and reservations are required by calling Lynn Bomberger at 831-375-7777.

Public lands keep America not only beautiful, but also strong. BLM Botanist Bruce Delgado and BLM Volunteer David Styer will lead this easy, one-mile to two-mile hike across flat or gently sloped terrain, including vernal pools, oak woodland and maritime chaparral. Hikers can see a variety of different vistas, rare plants and native early spring blooms such as lilies, wild lilac and manzanita.

Participants should dress in layers, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring a lunch and plenty of water.
