Sunday, May 14th, 9:00 am, Arroyo de la Cruz, North SLO County.

Join us for this Mother’s Day visit to one of the “hottest” spots for botanical diversity in San Luis Obispo county. Our leader D.R. “Doc” Miller will take us to see the unique species located on these coastal bluffs. The Arroyo de la Cruz area features a variety of plant communities and a number of endemic and rare plants found only in this relatively small area.

Meet at the Elephant Seal Overlook (first entrance on the left going north) at 9:00 am. The field trip will last roughly 3 hours.  Be sure to bring water, snacks, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, a hat, and layered clothing, as needed.

For those wanting to carpool from the south, meet in the parking lot of Spencer’s Market in Morro Bay (2650 Main Street) at 8:30 am.

    Saturday, December 8th, 9:30 am, Bill Deneen Memorial Hike to Point Sal and Get-Together

    As a way to acknowledge the contributions of Bill Deneen and to remember him, we are planning a hike to his beloved Point Sal. We will hike to the ridge and then to the beach, though hikers can choose to go as far as they would like. The total hiking distance is up to 10 miles with more than 1,000 ft. elevation gain – so it is easy to strenuous, depending on the length chosen.

    After the hike, hikers and non-hikers alike will meet at La Simpatia Restaurant (827 Cabrillo Hwy, Guadalupe) at 2:00 pm, to eat, trade stories, and remembrances. Bring a story and any pictures or memorabilia you would like to share.

    Directions to Point Sal: from Hwy 101 exit Hwy 166 west towards Guadalupe. Turn left on Highway 1, then right on Brown Road. Continue on Brown Road until the gate. Park at the gate. Make sure to leave no valuables in your car, there have been break ins. Dress in layers, bring hat, sunscreen, plenty of water, snacks. Contact Andrea 805-934-2792, or Carlos 805-546-0317, or Bill 805-459-2103. Rain cancels the hike, but not the get-together at 2:00 pm.
