After a cool winter, wildflowers abound in and around Julian.
With more than 850 flowering species waiting to be discovered, it’s easy to understand why the Julian Woman’s Club founded its annual Wildflower Show.
Since 1926, locals and visitors alike have gathered in town hall to see nature’s offerings, as well as enjoy art and science projects from local students, a plant sale and an opportunity drawing.
Before the show, club members fan out within 25 miles of town to pick flowers from private property — with the owners’ permission, of course — and create 200 bouquets, transforming town hall into a wildflower wonderland. Information cards and local experts are on hand to educate curious minds about the flowers and their significance.
The next show will be held May 3 to 5, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Julian Town Hall 2129 Main St.
Admission is free, and donations to benefit local service organizations and the club’s scholarship program are welcome.
Folks come from all over southern California to see the mountain wildflowers; luckily, the Wildflower Show makes it easy to see them all in one place!
