Trip Recap

Incredibly, 20 people showed up between the raindrops on a cool, cloudy morning to trounce through the Fossil Reef Sheep Hills area of Aliso Viejo. We discussed the unusual geology, archeology and botany of the site and were able to see several of the local plant specialties. Eventually the rain came, but some of the dedicated plant-watchers carried in nonetheless and set off to view the small fern Notholaena californica and the nettle relative Parietaria hespera var. hespera. For a complete list of the plant seen today or during the week, click the "Plants Seen" tab.

A little mud on our shoes, but lots of shared knowledge and an appreciation of our native flora nourished our souls.
