The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is offering residents an opportunity to enjoy beautiful vistas and wildflowers with naturalist-led walking tours at North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve.

Wildflower season generally begins in late February and goes into April. Depending on rainfall, wildflowers may be widespread in early May too.

Tours are offered in March and April on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each tour features a two and half mile hike over uneven terrain. Dogs are not allowed.

Up to 25 people may register for each timeslot. Online preregistration is required at www.wildlife.ca.gov/regions/2/wildflower-tours. Please visit the CDFW website for a full description.

Those unable to register online or needing more information can call CDFW Interpretive Services at (916) 358-2869 or email interpretiveservices@wildlife.ca.gov.
