Poppy Status at the A.V. Poppy Reserve - There's a Live Cam!


Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve: "There are *some* poppies blooming. Your best bet is Antelope trail north loop & Kitanemuk vista point. Beat the crowds & enjoy the early flowers."

The Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve Facebook post includes these details about visiting the Poppy Reserve: 

  • Still unknown when the height of the bloom will be. 
  • Check the weather first.
  • Poppies close up in cloudy weather.
  • Pop over to our livestreaming poppy cam https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=31189 
  • Stay on the official trails only! 
    • Getting a picture of one really nice wildflower off the trail will crush all the plants along the way and compact the soil, leaving lifeless bare dirt for the next few years or longer. 
    • If someone else has started a trail, do not add to the damage. 

Do NOT pick the wildflowers. 

  • Everything is protected, from the tiniest wildflower to the rocks on the trail. 
  • Damaging or collecting anything from the park is prohibited. 

Poppies wilt immediately after being picked, and they hold the seeds that we need for the next year's wildflowers. #DontDoomTheBloom
