30th ANNUAL SPRING WILDFLOWER SHOW
…the North Coast celebration of wild California plants
The California Native Plant Society (CNPS) invites the public to their annual
Spring Wildflower Show and Native Plant Sale, Friday May 4 through Sunday May 6,
at the Manila Community Center, 1611 Peninsula Dr., Manila (off Hwy 255 between
Arcata and Samoa Bridge). All activities are free.
The show hours are Friday May 4, 1-5 p.m.; Saturday May 5,10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and
Sunday May 6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The Wildflower Show is more than flowers – it’s a community event. Besides
hundreds of specimens from fields, dunes, forests, and wetlands, there are talks
or special displays about edible and medicinal plants, conifers, ferns,
grasslands, rare plants, invasive plants, Native American traditions, and live
insects, as well as guided walks in the nearby dunes, and an art class on Friday
evening. A Native Plant Sale accompanies the show on Saturday and Sunday.
