Jepson Prairie Preserve


A great blue heron flying over Jepson Prairie in the wintertime.


The vernal pools fill during the rainy season.


In springtime the pools recede and a variety of flowers begin to bloom.


An American avocet wades in a pool..


Cupped downingia.


A tiny Pacific tree frog sitting by some Delta woolly marbles.


A spring carpet of Fremont's goldfields.


Blow wives.


White hyacinth.


As the vernal pools evaporate, a variety of plants sprout up.


And they eventually dry out.


A place to enjoy the Jepson Prairie vistas.
