On October 24th, 1999, the Valley Oaks were in peak acorn season. This is not a particularly high production year, but there were still plenty to see on the trees and find on the ground. We do not promote collecting of these acorns from Kaweah Oaks Preserve. Please leave the acorns as winter food for Scrub Jays, Ground Squirrels, several woodpeckers and many insects and fungi. Very few germinate and become seedlings next Spring, so let's try to keep the odds in their favor!
