Viewing Plants

California Fuchsia

Plant lovers have much to admire on the San Bernardino National Forest. The wide elevation range of the forest means that a great variety of plants can be found here. One of the most popular times to view plants is during wildflower season which usually starts in March in the lower elevations and June in the higher elevations. Fall is another good time as the black oak, big leaf maple, quaking aspen, willow, and other deciduous trees turn to their rich autumn hues.

The USDA Plants Database is a great place to find out more about specific plants - you can search by common or scientific name, or by area.
