Kenwood Marsh Checkerbloom conservation site with Kate Symonds
July 11, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Kenwood marsh is the only known remaining location for the federal and state endangered Kenwood marsh checkerbloom (Sidalcea oregana ssp. valida) and is endemic (limited to) Sonoma County. This last known occurrence is on property owned by the Deerfield Ranch Winery.
With a very short walk (few hundred yards) over grassy, uneven ground we’ll visit the caged enclosures of the Kenwood marsh checkerbloom during its blooming season. Outing leader, Kate Symonds has been working with Deerfield Ranch Winery since 2006 to promote conservation activities for the checkerbloom. Deerfield Ranch Winery owner and winemaker, Robert Rex, will be on hand to discuss the checkerbloom.
