UPDATE: Field Trips have been cancelled or postponed to ensure the safety of everyone. Please check back for updates

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 learn about the plants, discuss plant communities, plant ecology, invasive plants and especially native plant identification. Past trips are at the end of the list.

We welcome your input and help. If you would like to suggest a trip, help organize a trip, know of a special place or person or assist in other way please contact us at . These great trips only happen because of great volunteers - like you.

Questions, leadership opportunities and suggestions should be sent to .
