2019 Wildflower Show

Friday April 19 to Sunday April 21 — 10.00 am to 5 pm
Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, 165 Forest Avenue, Pacific Grove

Co-Chairs Brian LeNeve and Michael Mitchell invite you to the 58th Annual Wildflower Show, the largest collection of wildflowers under one roof in the Northern and Western Hemispheres.

A spectacular show with nearly 700 specimens on display so we are hopeful that the good rainfall we have had this year should lead to a great display. 

Members of CNPS will be available during the show to identify plants or (hopefully) photos of plants for the public and Bruce Cowen will lead tours of the Museum's native plant garden.

Curious About CVA?
Carmel Valley Association is one of the oldest, largest, and most suc cessful community organizations in Monterey County. We are entirely volunteer, with no paid employees. Our mission is to defend the beauty, resources and rural character of our beautiful valley. We do that by working with residents, businesses, and government.
 
CVA was instrumental in the adoption of the Carmel Valley Master Plan and recently settled a lawsuit with Monterey County regarding traffic measurement and capping future development on very favorable terms for our valley. Our volunteer experts represent Carmel Valley's interest, testifying before governmental bodies concerning development, water, traffic, road signs, and other quality of life issues.

We keep valley residents informed about important issues and events with our weekly email Bulletin, which goes to over 1100 residents, and our quarterly Newsletter, which is mailed to over 7,000 valley addresses.

or reply to this email 

Member Richard Cheatham has created a video about our beautiful Carmel Valley and CVA's role in preserving it.
