Wildflower Viewing In Colusa County
Redmaids, Tidytip, Adobe Lilly

CURRENT Wildflower viewing information can be obtained from local Bear Valley rancher Jim Keegan at keeganranch@gmail.com.

Colusa County hosts an amazing array of beautiful wildflowers, but little information is available for folks who are interested in getting out and viewing these natural wonders. This section of our website is dedicated to sharing information on location and timing of some of the best wildflower blooms in the County. You can view weekly updates from 2010 below, with photographs, plant descriptions, location for viewing, etc.

Also, check out the latest 2012 update from Bear Valley below.

Thank you to Jack Alderson, NRCS (Colusa Field Office) for supplying photographs and supporting information for this section of our website.
