The Crosby Habitat Management Area, Rancho Santa Fe Rare Plant Treasure Hunt
March 8 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Where: The Crosby Habitat Management Area, Rancho Santa Fe
When: Friday March 8th, 9am-1pm
Trip Leaders: Amy Patten & Jonathan Appelbaum
Join CNPS and San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy for a training on collecting data for the Rare Plant Treasure Hunt program. Many rare plant populations haven’t been seen in decades, and some parts of the state have seen little to no botanical exploration to date. This program helps conserve our rare flora by training citizen scientists to collect valuable data for the CNPS Rare Plant Program and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
We’ll survey The Crosby Habitat Management Area in Rancho Santa Fe for rare species, including Adolphia californica, Ceanothus verrucosus, and Ambrosia pumilla. Participants will learn how to survey for rare plants, record habitat data, and assess potential impacts and threats.
Bring water and sturdy footwear. We’ll provide supplies for collecting data. Space is limited so please RSVP here!
