    Saturday, Sept 30th, 8:30 – 11:30 am, Second survey of a rare plant habitat workshop, Los Osos

    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.

    For more information, contact Melissa at (805) 459-8099, mjmoon@charter.net.
