Borrego Sun - Since 1949

Borrego Springs - Wildflower Bloom


Last updated 1/10/2016 at 7:41am

El Niño-driven storms have been bringing much needed rain to the area this week.

With the rain, comes the hope of a spectacular display of wild flowers over the mountains come spring and carpets of purple sand verbena and the dune primrose covering the desert floor. February, March and April will see the California poppies and Monkey flowers decorating the roadsides.

Continued rainfall could mean higher survival rates for deer, quail and wild turkey who will benefit from the new growth and available water. Coyotes, hawks and owls could be seen in greater numbers as the rabbits and rodents make use of the bounty on offer.

Take a trip to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Visitors Center for a variety of activities and programs to enjoy the ever changing landscape surrounding Borrego.
