The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is offering a free, naturalist-led tour of North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve near Oroville in March and April. Tour leaders will discuss the area’s unique geology, beautiful vistas, wildflowers and vernal pools.
Wildflower season generally begins slowly in late February, increases through March and peaks in April.
Two, two-hour tours are offered every Saturday in March and April at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each is limited to 25 participants. North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve is one of California’s premier wildlife sites, featuring more than 100 plant species on its rolling, volcanic lands.
