This is an opportunity to meet hikers who have spent time on the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail).
Join backpackers Bill and Diana Waycott, Jacqui Stone, and Timothy Kershaw of the Sierra Club and the California Native Plant Society for this workshop. They will bring their equipment to illustrate what essentials are needed for a backpacking trip, how to lighten one’s load before you get out on the trip, and discuss an assortment of food options to consider.
Meet at the SLO Vet’s Hall, 801 Grand Ave. Bring questions and equipment, if you think it needs a critique.

If you have an interest in collecting data at a rare plant habitat site, please join plant biologists Melissa Mooney and Bill Waycott for this workshop.
San Luis Obispo County is home to many rare plant habitats, most of which have not been surveyed in many years. We will work in teams to identify and record the dominant plant species within a 60-foot radius from a predetermined GPS point. We plan to survey other rare plant habitats in the county over the next two years. This data will be forwarded to the state office for inclusion in the Manual of California Vegetation.
Please meet at the corner of Highland Drive and Broderson Ave. in Los Osos. Bring a clipboard, sharpened pencil with a good eraser, a phone or device that reads GPS locations (if available), along with a hat, water, and snacks.
