[RAIN CANCELS THIS EVENT!]
This trip is a yearly treat, and the trail won't change much but the plants and flowers and knowledge will be for the better! For 2019, we've had an extraordinary amount of rain and that means an extraordinary amount of bloom. We'll do a three part trip, with opportunities to head out after the Red Ridge trail, or continue on down the Margaret Fleming Trail to the canyon below with a completely different vegetation community and plant types. Instead of calling it a day - there's a third portion where we'll rejoin after lunch at Crest Canyon Park (just to the north). Crest Canyon has many similar environments and species, but is not as covered. We'll be more focused on doing stronger documentation including iNaturalist and tagging species for possible collections. Our CNPS San Diego Rare Plant Botanist Fred Roberts will join us to help identify and document the rare plants in both areas.
