Saturday, Febuary 17, 1:30 pm, field trip to Huckleberry Regional Botanic Preserve. If it’s raining on February 17, but not on February 18, then this field trip will take place on Febuary 18 at 1:30 pm. We’ll meet in the Huckleberry parking lot and go out to look at maritime chapparal that flowers in winter.
Directions: Go from Highway 13 to Snake to Shepherd Canyon to its end at Skyline and turn left to follow Skyline to Huckleberry Park. The road damage on Snake is still not fixed.
The trip leader is Janet Gawthrop.
Sunday, February 25, 2:00 pm, nature walk in Redwood Regional Park. A fairly short walk along the East Ridge Trail starting at the Moon Gate entrance to Redwood Regional Park (on Skyline Drive).
The trail has many western leatherwood shrubs, which should all be in bloom, along with other shrubs and flowers. We will walk to the Chabot Observatory, and then some ways into the redwoods groves downslope. Trip led by David Margolies.
