[ALL WEATHER EVENT]

This is expected to be a short morning trip with early afternoon options afterwards. We'll be meeting at the surprisingly diverse Dictionary Hill where an uplift of meta volcanics in the area have created a spot where rare plant and animal species hold on while being surrounded by development. Dictionary Hill is a location where the endangered Quino Checkerspot butterfly has been known to fly. We'll follow the lead of the primary docent, Jim Merzbacher and (hopefully) County Parks Ranger Craig Newson. Jim is a co-founder of Dictionary Hills Open Space Advocates (DHOSA) dictionaryhill.info/index.html, an excellent non-profit focusing on this local treasure. Check out their website for more info about their work and the land they act to protect.
