The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is offering naturalist-led wildflower tours this spring at North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve near Oroville.

Wildflower season usually begins slowly in late February and peaks in April.

The tour features a hike of a little more than two miles over uneven terrain, covering the area’s unique geology, beautiful vistas, wildflowers and vernal pools.

Two tours will be offered every Saturday in March and April at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Dogs are not allowed. Participants are encouraged to visit CDFW’s website for a full description (see link below). Each group is limited to 25 participants. Advance registration is required at
