Atascadero Plant Walk

Join us for a plant ID walk on the new trail at Three Bridges Oak Preserve. This trail starts in blue oak woodland, ascends into chaparral, and ends in stands of madrone and views towards the east. It is 4 miles up and back, ascending 800 ft. The ascent is gradual, along a winding trail towards the top of the ridge.

Come and learn the easy to identify species. Pick out plants that attract you. Bring native plant samples with you to be identified.

To reach the trailhead (note there are many streets involved), go west on Highway 41 from Atascadero, turn right onto San Gabriel Rd. for 0.5 miles, turn right onto Monita Rd. for 0.2 miles, turn right onto Sierra Vista Rd., turn left onto Andrita Rd. for 0.2 miles, continue onto Casanova Ave. for 0.7 miles, continue onto Carmelita Ave. for 0.2 miles to the trailhead. There are 4 signs helping to guide you along these streets to the parking lot.

Make sure to bring water and snacks. Sturdy shoes, sunscreen, hats, and layered clothing are recommended. No RSVP needed and no dogs please. Also, bring paper and pencil to take notes, and a camera for a photo record. If you would like a preprinted copy of the plant list for this walk, let the hike leader know 24 hours in advance. For more information, contact Bill Waycott, (805) 459 2103, bill.waycott@gmail.com. Rain cancels.

Program: Travels with a Geobotanist: Plant Life on Serpentine and other Harsh Soils with Dr. Nishi Rajakaruna

Dr. Nishi Rajakaruna fell in love with plants at a young age during a visit to Sinharaja Rainforest, Sri Lanka. He received a BA in human ecology from the College of the Atlantic, and an MS and PhD in botany from the University of British Columbia. He conducted post-doctoral research in plant ecology at Stanford University. His research examines how plant diversity, ecology, and evolution are influenced by serpentine and other ‘unusual’ soils, including those with heavy metals. He has taught botany at College of the Atlantic and San Jose State University during the last 12 years and is currently an associate professor in plant biology at California Polytechnic State University.
