Watch Your Step – It’s Snake Season

Spring is here, and that means longer hours, warmer temperatures and more people – and wildlife – out in the parks.

  • Parks open later: Spring-summer hours, during Daylight Saving Time, mean parks close at 9 p.m. or sunset.
  • Wildlife sightings: Park rangers have reported increased sightings of snakes, including rattlesnakes. Be sure to keep yourself – and your dog, where permitted – on the trail and aware of your surroundings to avoid an encounter. Also watch out for ticks clinging to long brush and grasses.
  • Wildflowers: As of early April, widespread blooms are reported. Take all the photos you want from the trail, but never pick wildflowers – leave them for others to enjoy and to spread their seeds for next season.
  • Warmer temperatures: While it’s always important to be prepared, warmer weather makes essentials like water and sunscreen even more important.

Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer in OC Parks Trees

The Polyphagous Shot Hole Borer (PSHB) is an invasive beetle that attacks common native and landscape trees, leading to branch dieback and overall decline. This can have a devastating effect on local trees, and you may see some being treated or removed in County parks.
