DFG schedules wildflower tours at Table Mountain .Spring wildflowers abound in North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve outside Oroviile. The Department of Fish and Game is organizing free guided hikes this spring. Photo courtesy California Department of Fish and Game Members of the public are inv Red to join Department of Fish and Game naturalists for tours of North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve near Oroville this spring. Tour leaders and local field experts will point out and discuss the area's unique ge- ology, beautiful vistas, spec- tacular wildflower blooms, rare vernal pools and more. North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve is open year-round from dawn to dusk. Hiking and bird watching are popular activi- ties but the wildflower viewing can be stunning. Wildflower season generally begins in late February through March, with peak blooms in April. However, the season and intensity of wildflower booms can vary greatly from year to year. Two tours will be offered every Saturday in March and April, one at 10 a.m. and one at 1 p.m. Each tour is limited to 25 participants. Advance registration is required on the DFG website. Visit dfg.ca.gov, then choose Lands under theResource Management tab. Click Eco- logical Reserves in the menu on the left, and choose Re- gion 2. In the map is a link to the information page for North Table Mountain Eco- logical Reserve. These tours were extreme- ly popular in 2011, so early registration is recommend- ed. Additional information and photos can also be found on the website. These two-hour tours cov- er up to two miles and involve moderate hiking over fields of uneven and "rocky terrain, without estab- lished trails. Some small stream crossings and hill climbing may be required. Hikers should wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes and bring their own water and snacks, as neither are available on- site. Dogs are not allowed on these tours. Before you visit, review the Special Restric- tions listed on the website. The tours are free, but reg- istrants are encouraged to make a donation online to the California Wildlife Foun- dation to support this pro- gram. Those who are unable to register online or need more information are invited to call DFG Interpretive Ser- vices at (916) 358-2869. Arbor Day Foundation offers five free trees in January Residents of California can ring in the new year by re- ceiving five free Crape myrtle trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation any time during January 2012. "These small flowering trees will provide any land- scape in California with a splash of color for much of the year, from pink and red flowers in the spring, to green in the summer to red, orange and yellow in the autumn," said John Rosenow, chief executive officer and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation's Trees for America campaign. The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between Feb. 1 and April 30, with enclosed planti- ng instructions. The 6- to 12- inch trees are guaranteed to grow, or they will be replaced free of charge. Arbor Day Foundatioh members also receive a subscription to the Founda- tion's colorful bimonthly pub- lication, Arbor Day, and "The Tree Book," which includes information about tree planti- ng and care. To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership contribution to 5 Crape myrtles, Arbor Day Founda- *tion, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebras- ka City, NE 68410, by Jan. 31.
