Spring is an exciting time, but it’s been a long time since it has been this exciting for Redwood Regional Park.  The Serpentine Prairie is now in full bloom.  Goldfields, purple needle grass, owl’s clover, and poppies now carpet the upper portion of the prairie which is normally barren by May 1.  Thanks should go to the East Bay Regional Park District that fenced off the sensitive serpentine habitat in the fall of 2009.  This is the first year for this new stewardship regime.

The results are simply stunning.  Please go out and visit the park and see for yourself.
