Please enjoy the blooms responsibly to ensure they keep coming back!
Look low: Many wildflowers in the desert are incredibly low growing. They conserve valuable energy and minimize exposure to strong wind and harsh sun.
Move slow: Watch your step and avoid stepping on vegetation and flowers. If you aren’t careful, you may accidentally crush or trample wildflowers or plant vegetation before they have bloomed.
Stay on the trail, and let the wildflowers prevail: Offtrail travel, whether on foot or in a vehicle, can be damaging. It compresses soils, limiting the availability of air, water, and nutrients to roots, and can lead to the decline and death of vegetation. Staying on trail minimizes your impact on fragile plants making their home in the desert.
