Spring Wildflowers & The Changing Environment, Long Valley Area
This year, like the desert below, promises to be a “superbloom” in the Mt. San Jacinto Wilderness. While appreciating the beauty of the blooms learn about the adaptations which permit them to survive and indeed thrive at this high altitude, with seasonally reliably harsh environments. How will they adapt to climate change: warmer and drier? Learn about special and subtle environmental niches that serve as perfect habitat surrounded by an otherwise inhospitable habitat. Whatever it takes to survive and reproduce!
