Come and experience the last piece of lowland vernal pool grassland in the South Bay. The Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is inviting CNPS members to guided tours in the Warm Springs Unit, a site with limited public access. These tours are being offered at different times to capture the temporal and spatial diversity of this unique site, home to many listed, rare and unusual species.

The wet winter this year is promising a spectacular display of calico flowers (Downingia pulchella). Come and experience the beauty of this flower and its allies. Treat your senses with a mini super bloom!
