Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose on the right, Contra Costa Wallflower on the left.
One of our baby primroses!
Each little orange flag is a flower we planted. Good work, team!
Thanks so much to Molly, the director of our ally group Tatzoo, for making an appearance!
It’s good to really get your hands dirty once in a while.
Nothing more vital to restoration efforts than devoted long-time volunteers.
And here’s what all this work was for: a gorgeous, fully mature, specimen of the Contra Costa Wallflower that bloomed a little early just for us to see.
A stark reminder of the fragility of this beautiful place and the plants and animals that inhabit it: “One careless cigarette or match could exterminate the last remaining population of the Lange’s Metalmark butterfly.”
