Download Our Free Cabrillo Wildflowers App

Now available on iTunes is the Cabrillo NM Wildflower app for iPhones & iPads. Just search "Cabrillo Wildflowers" or use this link.

The app is loaded with lots of great plant photos (with more to come in future updates) and information. While particularly relevant to Cabrillo and Pt Loma, its a useful resource for anyone working in coastal southern California lands. Its very user friendly and appropriate for both the advanced botanist and causal observer.

Did you know that delicate-looking tidepool creatures at Cabrillo National Monument are actually very hardy, and have adapted well to harsh conditions of pounding surf, intermittent exposure to sun and drying wind, and sharp changes in temperature and salinity?
