Join me for City Nature Challenge!

Super-secret drives into the heart of watershed lands for the most exciting plants!

Friday 4/27 we're headed to Kent Pump Road for local rarities such as broomrapes, Tamalpais oak, Scouler's willow, raptors, frogs, and more Apiaceae than you can shake a carrot at!

Monday 4/30 we're off to Soulajule for tiny annuals, Baker's larkspur, and ALL the Castilleja! Is there Arabis eschscholziana out there? You'll have to come see for yourself!

RSVP to volunteerprogram@marinwater.org for a seat in the mystery machine (our 4WD van)...
Saturday we're also holding a public event at Lake Lagunitas, see our project page https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2018-at-lake-lagunitas

Join me in a month for "Apps and Snaps" in Oakland!

Good people of iNat (because "Followers" is just as strange as "people who are following me"):

In a month I'll be teaching a new course with the California Native Grasslands Association, centered around the use of technology for identifying, mapping, and monitoring grasses and grassland plants.

If you or someone you know wants to learn about photomonitoring, apps such as iNat and Calflora, taking good pictures of tricky subjects such as grasses, basic grass parts, and using technology to cheat at plant ID...then sign up! Spread the word!

The Trudeau Center is adjacent to Redwood Regional Park's serpentine prairie, where we'll spend some field time practicing what we've learned. It's going to be a great day!
