Saturday, June 15th, 9:00 am, Arroyo de la Cruz, North SLO County

This field trip visits one of the “hottest” spots for botanical diversity in San Luis Obispo Co. Our leaders D.R. “Doc” Miller and Elizabeth Appel will lead us on a tour of several 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. For those wanting to carpool from the south, meet in the Santa Rosa Park parking lot in San Luis Obispo at 8:00 am.

The field trip will last roughly 3 hours.  Bring adequate water, snacks, and dress in layers for the weather; a hat and sturdy shoes are advised.

For more information, contact: Bill 805-459-2103.  No dogs please.
