Wildflower Showcase

Special Events
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.
