Wildflowers

Point Reyes WildflowersOver 60 species of wildflowers have been counted on the coastal plateaus of Point Reyes. Few areas in North America have the variety of habitats found within the 100 square miles on the Point Reyes Peninsula. Spring displays in March, April and May of wild iris, lupine, tidy tips, buttercups & poppies make it hard to believe that these meadows were not planted. If you should need help in planning your wildflower walks, give us a call and we'll be happy to assist you. Here are some hints:
