Fort Tejon’s geographical location is unique, as several ecological regions merge in the area including the Central Valley, the Sierra Nevada, the Mojave Desert, and Southern California climates. The major plant vegetation is oak woodlands that provide shelter and cover for a variety of animals, including the California condor. Deer are often seen grazing in the meadows during the late afternoon hours in the spring and summer months. California poppies are among the many wildflowers found in the park.
