Join certified California Naturalist and photographer Charlie Russell on a wildflower excursion at North Table Mountain Ecological Preserve! This area, located approximately seven miles north of Oroville, is one of the most spectacular wildflower locations in California, with over 540 species of plants. You will meet at the Preserve and spend the day searching for early season wildflowers in a variety of microclimates. You’ll even get to hear Charlie talk about the geology of the area. The hike will be approximately 4 miles roundtrip. You will traverse across hilly and uneven terrain. A sack lunch is included.

Charlie Russell is a certified California Naturalist and is a longtime enthusiast of wildflower photography. He documents his discoveries on his website and has recently begun branching out into wildlife and landscape photography. Charlie is also a dedicated docent for Yolo Basin Foundation and the Jepson Prairie Preserve. For more information about Charlie, click here.
