Come to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve on December 1st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the first annual “Poppy Sale”! The Jane S. Pinheiro Interpretive Center, normally only open during the spring wildflower season, will be reopened exclusively for this one-day sale.
All gift shop items are 20% off! Choose from poppy-themed gifts and stocking stuffers unique to the Antelope Valley, such as local wildflower note cards and reprints of Jane S. Pinheiro’s watercolor paintings. Enjoy complimentary hot spiced cider as you peruse poppy-themed t-shirts, hats, keychains, jewelry, and more.
Weather permitting, guided walks will be offered to view the poppy seedlings that we hope to see exploding into color this coming spring. Milt Stark, local wildflower expert and author of A Flower Watcher’s Guide to the Wildflowers of the Antelope Valley will be on hand to sign his definitive guide book. Bring your camera for pictures of the kids with the “Christmas Owl”!
Sale proceeds benefit the non-profit Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association, which funds educational programs and materials for several of the California State Parks of the Antelope Valley. More information can be found at www.prmdia.org, or at www.facebook.com/PRMDIA. Come out and support your local California State Parks!
