Wildflower Showcase

Come see some amazing Orange County native wildflowers in bloom!

The Orange County Chapter of California Native Plant Society, and the Irvine Ranch Conservancy invite you to an informal open house at the Conservancy’s Native Seed Farm. This event is a great way to learn more about OC California Native Plant Society (OC-CNPS) and the Conservancy’s work in conserving, protecting, and restoring native wildflowers in Orange County.

The 8-acre native seed farm currently grows 45 local plant species, each providing seed used to support ecological restoration in Orange County. There will be brief presentations at the beginning of the event from OC-CNPS and Conservancy staff and repeated later in the day.

Following the morning presentations,  you will be able to enjoy the grounds when you bring your own picnic lunch alongside fellow plant lovers. After lunch, guests are invited to stroll the grounds at their own pace, or join a guided walking tour.

You will  learn about some of the amazing local flora grown right here on the Farm. OC-CNPS will also provide some talks on various local engagement opportunities, including information about field trips and their upcoming native garden tour.

If you enjoy native wildflowers, good people, and outdoor fun, this event is for you! Please prepare for this event by reviewing the event guidelines provided in your confirmation. You will need to bring items to keep you healthy and safe in an outdoor setting.

– Sun protection is recommended.

-Parking is limited. Carpooling is strongly encouraged! Tip: Have the driver of your carpool do the registering for your whole group. 

-Please bring a picnic lunch for yourself if you plan to attend during the lunch hour. (Food is not available on site.)

We look forward to having you join us!
