We’ll visit the serpentinite flora and check on the status of the goat-grass control project on the Terra Linda side of the ridge. The fire-road trail winds creekside along Old Lucas Valley Road in the Las Gallinas Valley then up onto the ridge. Usually creekside box elder, maple, and various oak woodland flowers are visible at this time of year, including a fine population of blue Delphinium patens. This is a round-trip walk, returning via the Mt. Muir fire road.

The California Native Plant Society is a non-profit organization of amateurs and professionals united by an interest in the plants of California. Its principal aims are to preserve the native flora and to add to the knowledge of members and the public at large.

All hikes are free and open to the public; please invite your friends.

The outings will often go on until 2 p.m., so bring your lunch, and be prepared for unreliable weather.

In all cases, morning rain cancels.
