|CALIFORNIA NATIVE PLANT SOCIETY HIKE: SAN ANDREAS TRAILHEAD - MT. BURDELL OPEN SPACE PRES|
|Date||Tuesday April 21|
|Time||9:00 AM - 2:00 PM|
|Import this event into your personal calendar.|
|Meet at the San Andreas trailhead for Mt Burdell. From Highway 101 in Novato, take the Atherton/San Marin exit, go west on San Marin for 2.3 miles, turn right on San Andreas. The trailhead is near the end of this short street, park bythe roadside.|
This hike should coincide with the peak of the local spring wildflower season, expect to see masses of grassland wildflowers and various serpentinite-soil specialties!
The hike will be led by Doreen Smith.
If participants are willing, we will learn to key some species, so make sure to bring your copy of either edition of Howell's "Marin Flora". If you don't already own a copy of this indispensible resource, it will be for sale at the trailhead at the start of the hike.
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.
