Overview

Under wide-open skies, Jepson Prairie Preserve explodes into color during its spring wildflower display. Dry and dormant most of the year, the prairie is transformed by winter rains into a tapestry of stunning colors, and its vernal pools host a rich diversity of rare aquatic life. Stay on the trails. No dogs allowed.

A little-known site for nature lovers. Be careful where you tread, as you might be squishing fairy shrimp or little wildflowers called "eggs and butter." Seasonal
