Each spring the desert is transformed in what seems like a magic trick - a rainbow of annual wildflowers sprouts from the dry desert soil. This transformation comes from the “seed bank” - tiny sparks of life waiting for just the right conditions - rain, sun, and warmth - to germinate. As the climate crisis progresses, those perfect conditions are changing, arriving at different times of year, or not at all. What effect will this have on the spring wildflower season? Help us understand these changes by making as many observations of wild plants with flowers as possible!
