Many of our local natural lands are experiencing a wildflower bloom. Did you know picking the flowers is not allowed? (They are a protected resource.) Did you know that going off trail ruins natural resources? (This creates new trails that impact the park and reduce visitor safety.) Did you know walking on wildflowers kills future blooms? (The wildflowers won’t go to seed next year.)
Claire Schlotterbeck of Hills For Everyone, founders of Chino Hills State Park, reminds visitors of the impacts in this Champion Newspapers article.
