Trione-Annadel State Park Rare Plant Treasure Hunt
March 21 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Meet by 9 a.m. at Parktrail Drive & Comfrey Place, Santa Rosa, ~ ½ mile east of Summerfield Rd. – N end of Vietnam Veterans Trail.
This trip will focus on rare plant monitoring and mapping; all attending will have the opportunity to participate. Our long walk will take us to several sub-populations of Fritillaria liliacea (fragrant fritillary) in the northwestern part of Trione-Annadel State Park. Expect up to 7 miles at a moderate pace, with lengthy stops to find, count, map, and document the plants and their local ecology. Plan for lots of time off-trail, on rough, rocky, sometimes wet ground (but no direct exposure to poison-oak!). Lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, and cameras strongly recommended. GPS receivers, clipboards, notebooks useful & optional.
