Saturday, June 13, 2015, 9:45 am to 2:15 pm: Redwood Regional Park, sedges, ferns, manzanitas, violets. Meet at the Chabot Space & Science Center, 10000 Skyline Boulevard, Oakland. Join Gregg Weber to see five species of sedge. Learn some basics of sedge ID. A copy of Field Guide to Intermountain Sedges and the key from the 2012 Jepson Manual will be available for reference. We will take the Redwood Peak Trail, the French Trail, the Starflower Trail, Los Tres Sendas Trail, and the Stream Trail. We will also see plenty of redwood violets and stream violets, both of which are yellow.
Directions: Get onto Skyline Drive in the Hills above Oakland. Go to the Chabot Space Center, which is about a mile north of Joaquin Miller Road. Turn into the driveway for the Space Center and park either in the lot or in the parking garage, which is free. Ignore the signs saying private property; they do not apply to Park or Chabot Space Center visitors.
