Most field trips are free and open to all, but read the trip outlines for parking/entrance fees or pass requirements and be sure they fit your physical abilities. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, appropriate trail shoes, a camera, a notepad and lots of enthusiasm. These are CA native plant field trips focused on the interpretation, identification and appreciation of our diverse flora and the ecosystems they support. We use botanical terms, discuss plant communities, plant ecology, invasive plants and especially native plant identification. Past trips are at the end of the list. Questions, leadership opportunities and suggestions should be sent to .
