Mushroom Walk, Cambria

Saturday. Dec. 21st, 10:00 am, Mushroom Walk, Cambria

Led by Eric Brunschwiler, David Krause, and Dennis Sheridan

We will look for mushrooms growing in the Monterey pine forests of Cambria while enjoying the beauty of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. Meet at the corner of Tipton Street and Warren Road in Cambria at 10:00 AM. How to get there: Travel north on Hwy 1 to Cambria. At the first stoplight, turn left onto Ardath Drive. Follow Ardath and turn right onto Tipton Street. Continue to the intersection with Warren Road (2 blocks) and find a parking place. Bring water, your field guides and a mushroom basket for you may want to collect some edible varieties. Dress appropriately for the weather. Be prepared for poison oak. The hike will be easy, about a 2-3 hour stroll through the woods. For additional information, email, text, or call Dave Krause: dkincmbria@aol.com, (805) 459-9007.

Cambria Wildflower Show

Cambria Wildflower Show

The premier wildflower show on the north coast is scheduled for April 13 & 14 at the Vet’s Hall in Cambria (1000 Main Street) from 12:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and 10:00 to 2:00 on Sunday.

We usually have around 400 species of plants on display collected from the coastal region from the county line to the North and Montana de Oro to the South. In the display, plants are grouped by family and labelled with scientific name and common name.  There are also notations for rare, invasive, and introduced. I think this would be a great event for any plant lover to experience.
