Discovering Mono County Plants with Ann Howald

February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Zoom link will be available at Milobaker.cnps.org  (link will be emailed to CNPS members)

Ann is a retired botanist with an M.A. in Botany from U.C. Santa Barbara. She worked for many years as a teacher, consultant, and agency botanist. Since the 1970s she has studied the plants of Mono County in the Eastern Sierra. Upon retiring, she began spending summers in Mono County, living in her used Airstream trailer, and working on an annotated checklist of Mono County plants. By searching remote corners of the county over the past eight years she has found many previously undetected species, including one new to science. Her winter work includes research visits to herbaria statewide, although Covid has slowed that effort. Ann also is a volunteer for Sonoma Co Parks, CA State Parks, the Bureau of Land Management, the Mono Lake Committee, and has been a fieldtrip leader and weed puller for the Milo Baker and Bristlecone chapters of CNPS for many years. Her presentation will highlight many of the beautiful and rare plants known from Mono County.
