Event Description:
The 4th annual Coastal Wildflower Day will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2017, 10am to 4pm, at Francis State Beach in Half Moon Bay. Family-friendly activities will create a fun atmosphere to teach visitors about native plant and animal species on the California coast, and how humans can help restore and maintain healthy ecosystems for these species. The mission of Coastal Wildflower Day is to inspire stewardship of diverse, interconnected ecosystems that support thriving coastal wildflower habitats, and to celebrate the vital role of volunteer community restoration efforts at our Coastside State Parks, now and in the future. Experts from seven different California State Parks, local non-profit organizations including Coastside State Parks Association and Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks, community volunteers, artists, native plant enthusiasts, and community groups who support the mission of Coastal Wildflower Day will collaborate to present a diverse array of interactive activities to educate and inspire stewardship of our coastal California State Parks for all ages. In addition to a Native Plant Sale whose proceeds benefit volunteer restoration activities at Half Moon Bay State Beach, visitors can go on guided Native Plant and Bird Walks led by naturalists, at 10:15 AM, 12:15 PM, and 2:15 PM. Live music and hula dance performances, artist vendors, and children’s activities will take place throughout the day outside Francis Beach Visitor Center. New this year will be the presence of the Lookmobile, an interactive mobile library designed to activate outdoor spaces and increase hands-on learning opportunities, presented by Half Moon Bay Library and San Francisco Exploratorium. Special activities include a Coloring Contest open to adults and children, a raffle, and Event Passport with prizes awarded. Visitors can bring a picnic, or enjoy the offerings of a food truck for lunch. Admission to the event is FREE. Parking in the Francis Beach parking lot is $10 per car. Walking and biking are encouraged. For more information, visit
