Field-Based Rare Vegetation Sampling / Mapping Workshop
Irvine Ranch Conservancy, Southeastern Orange County
Saturday, April 30, 2011; 8:30 am to 5 pm

The CNPS Vegetation Program is conducting a field-based rare vegetation sampling/mapping workshop on Saturday, April 30, 2011 in southeastern Orange County.  The workshop is being held to train CNPS chapter members in mapping rare vegetation types in the field using aerial photography.  This workshop will focus on techniques to identify and survey rare natural communities using our combined CNPS/DFG protocols. 

The workshop will be held from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (gather at 8:15 am) on lands managed by the Irvine Ranch Conservancy.  The overall goals of the workshop are to learn about the diversity of alluvial scrub vegetation, to highlight areas containing rare plant communities, and discuss opportunities for future surveys/mapping in priority areas.  The cost of the workshop is a suggested donation of $25 for CNPS members. The fee for non-members is $70, which includes one-year $45 CNPS membership.
