    New Reservoir Canyon Trail Plant Walk

    Join us for a plant ID walk in Reservoir Canyon and the new trail that leads to Bowden Ranch. The focus of this fieldtrip will be riparian and serpentine plant communities, plants one would regularly encounter throughout much of the greenbelt surrounding the city of San Luis Obispo. 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.

    Meet at Santa Rosa Park in SLO at 8:45 am (to car pool to the trailhead) or at the Reservoir Canyon trailhead at 9:00 am (parking can be limited). 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.
