Mt Calavera native plant hike with James Dillane

Skyhaven and Azure Lado Dr.
April 21 Sat 8:30 - 12 noon
Annual Mt Calavera Wildlfower Hike with James Dillane:
James Dillane of CNPS will join Preserve Calavera for a botanical exploration in the Calavera area preserve. This rich area includes varied habitats with several rare species and several post fire areas. A preliminary plant list will be available to aid in learning. Last year many of us saw Death Camus and Danny's Skullcap for the first time-who knows what we will find this year! Beginners welcome. First hour will be a slow teaching hike, 2nd hour (and longer) a faster paced plant assessment. For those who can't get enough of our native plants the hike will continue to the summit of Mt. Calavera where we will stop for snacks. Meet at the Calavera trailhead next to Skyhaven near Azure Lado Dr. in Oceanside. (Thomas Guide p 1107 C3). Hike includes undeveloped trails, some rough terrain, and 500' elevation gain. Wear good hiking boots/shoes with good tread, hat and bring water. Sunscreen and snack if you are planning the longer hike. Space is limited-RSVP required. Email email@example.com or call 760-720-9060.
