Black Diamond Mines in Bloom
Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve was once home to California’s most important coal fields. Today, we’ll be mining (figuratively) wildflowers in this Bay Area botanical hotspot.
We’ll also see the historic Rose Hill Cemetery and the underground Greathouse Visitor Center. The natural landscape immediately to the east of this beautiful park is at high risk of development. Check out our At Risk Report.
