Celebrating Wildflower Week with Lassen National Forest

Gorgeous Wildflowers are in full bloom
on the mountains surrounding Susanville.

Spring has arrived, and with it wildflowers. This week the Lassen National Forest is ‘Celebrating Wildflowers’ from May 20th – 23rd to highlight local native flowering plants.

Throughout the week, the Forest will promote the importance of native plant conservation, with an emphasis on the biological, aesthetic, and economic value of these plants.

Displays depicting a variety of wildflowers common to our area will be available to the public, Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at these Forest locations:

• Forest Supervisor’s Office 2550 Riverside Dr., Susanville (530) 257-2151

• Almanor Ranger District 900 East Highway 36, Chester (530) 258-2141

Along with the displays, a variety of free materials will be offered, including wildflower posters, magnets, frisbees, and guides to some of the local wildflower viewing spots.
