People exploring nature in the Sierra Nevada Mountains can use this handy photographic field guide to identify common native wildflower and shrub species.
The flowers in the guide are grouped by color to make identification as easy as possible, and the accompanying text indicates size, bloom period, and other characteristics of each plant. The guide’s six double-sided panels fold up into a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use. Lamination has also made the guide waterproof.
The plants identified in Wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada grow in a large area that extends from Kern County to Plumas County, and includes Sequoia, Kings Canyon, and Yosemite National Parks. Use this guide in the Eldorado, Lake Tahoe, Plumas, Sequoia, Sierra, and Stanislaus National Forests, as well as Calaveras Big Trees, Washoe Meadows, and Plumas-Eureka State Parks.
