Location: Location:

Pam Brunsfeld will give a presentation on the “Desert Superbloom” that occurred in Southern California in late February and March 2017.  Over 50 species covered the desert floor in Joshua Tree National Park and Anza Borrego State Park. Pam will share pictures of some of these species and landscape photos showing the tapestries of desert wildflowers.


After five years of exceptional drought, California desert landscapes exploded with “superblooms” of wildflowers following just-right conditions including ample winter precipitation. It was the most spectacular display some locations had seen in more than two decades.
