Upcoming Field Trips

You are welcome to join the Marin chapter of the California Native Plant Society on hikes to see seasonal native plants in the field. All hikes are free and open to the public, so please invite your friends. Beginning plant enthusiasts welcome on all hikes.

Come prepared for any type of weather or conditions, dress in layers, have non-slip footwear, and bring rain/wind protection just in case. Although it may be sunny and warm when you leave home, the weather could be cold and foggy when we reach our destination. Bring lunch and plenty of water, binoculars and/or hand lenses, and your favorite field guides. Please contact hike leaders with any questions about individual hikes.

This dry spring might hold some surprises, but we hope to find in bloom several of this Marin County Open Space preserve’s rare plants, including Tiburon mariposa lily (Calochortus tiburonensis), found only at this location, and Marin dwarf flax (Hesperolinon congestum). Other lovely flowers we can expect to see include Ithuriel’s spear (Triteleia laxa) and farewell-to-spring (Clarkia rubicunda).
