Rare Plant Treasure Hunt – Sierra Foothills Chapter search for Eriogonum luteolum var. saltuarium
Rare plant treasure hunt for Eriogonum luteolum var. saltuarium. Leader: Frank Rauchschwalbe. Hiking Level is Moderate. The search areas are short distances from Hwy 108 but will require walking around in rocky/boulder areas at several stops. Little is known about this plant.
Historically, this variety is only known along Hwy 108 between Dardanelle and Kennedy Meadow. Two populations, one of them a new find, were confirmed in 2017 and will be checked prior to June 23 for
trip timing. RSVP to Frank.
Meet at 8:30a.m., at the east end of the Twain Harte shopping center parking lot near CSERC. From Sonora east about 10 miles on Rt. 108, left on Twain Harte Dr. lower loop entrance for about I mile past T.H. Hardware and the elementary school. Take the next left for one block to the grocery store parking lot. Turn right into the parking lot
past the front of the grocery store.
