A plant list for Shell Creek can be found on our website here. You can also go to our website here to purchase wildflower books for Shell Creek, Highway 58 and the Carrizo Plain; some items are ebooks which need to be downloaded before you hit the trail. Some of the ebooks are free! We will also have some books available for purchase at the meeting location.

Bring water, snacks, hat, sturdy shoes, and dress in layers for changing weather. Come prepared because this is a long and fun day. There are no bathroom facilities along the hike route. Rain or threat of rain cancels or postpones this trip.
