Monterey Bay CNPS Wildflower Show, Friday, Saturday & Sunday 10am to 5pm
April 19, 10:00 am - April 21, 5:00 pm
You do not need to sign-up, just go and enjoy the beauty! This is the Monterey Bay Chapter of California Native Plant Society’s 58th Annual Wildflower Show.
Co-chairs Brian LeNeve and Michael Mitchell invite you to the Annual Wildflower Show at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. This winter’s rainfall has, so far, made up for its unusually late start and we are hoping that we may have a fine wildflower season and be able to put on a spectacular show with over 700 specimens on display.
During the show, members of CNPS will be available to identify plants or (hopefully) photos of plants for the public and Bruce Cowen will lead tours of the museum’s native plant garden.
The CNPS bookstore will be there all three days offering books on California native plants including our newest, gorgeous, “must have!” Monterey County Wildflowers—a Field Guide by Rod Yeager, MD and Michael Mitchell. This is a wonderful photo book of 950 of the most common plants in the County. Also available will be our more technical publication, The Plants of Monterey County, an Illustrated Field Guide, Second Edition by Matthews and Mitchell. Numerous other titles will be available to help you identify native plants, show you how to use them in your garden, find them on your travels, and learn about their historical and current importance.
While details are not currently available, we expect that the Museum will have a stimulating selection of classes scheduled during the show. Please check their website for updates at http://www.pgmuseum.org.
