The premier wildflower show on the north coast is scheduled for April 13 & 14 at the Vet’s Hall in Cambria (1000 Main Street) from 12:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and 10:00 to 2:00 on Sunday.
We usually have around 400 species of plants on display collected from the coastal region from the county line to the North and Montana de Oro to the South. In the display, plants are grouped by family and labelled with scientific name and common name. There are also notations for rare, invasive, and introduced. I think this would be a great event for any plant lover to experience.

Researchers have discovered that Phytophthora ramorum, the pathogen that causes SOD, spreads most often on infected California bay laurel leaves. Some management options are available, but they are effective only if implemented before oaks and tanoaks are infected; hence, timely detection of the disease on bay laurel leaves is essential for a successful proactive attempt to slow down the SOD epidemic.
CNPS-SLO Annual SOD Blitz
The SOD Blitz informs and educates the community about the disease and its effects, gets locals involved in detecting the disease, and produces detailed local maps of disease distribution. The map can then be used to identify those areas where the infestation may be mild enough to justify proactive management.
- A community meeting/training session held on a Friday evening in May, followed by collection of leaf samples by volunteers on Saturday and Sunday.
- Samples and accompanying forms are then turned in at a central location Saturday and Sunday afternoon/evenings.
- We provide a list of recommended areas for sampling at the meeting and divide into groups.
