The Colors of Spring in the Red Hills ACEC


The vegetation of the Red Hillls is unique.  The assemblage of plant species found there, including 7 rare plants, occurs nowhere else in the world.  In the early spring the seemingly barren hills turn yellow, white, lavender and pink, with a spectacular wildflower display.

Recreational opportunites such as hiking, horseback riding, nature study and seasonal wildflower viewing can be enjoyed there.  See more on the Red Hills ACEC . . .
