Wild Flowers & Wild Grasses

Only one percent of California’s once vast native grasslands remain. What does this mean to Northern California? Perhaps a decline in wildflowers? Mendocino County experts will teach us why we must care and what role we can play in grasslands restoration. Explore the wildflowers and native grasses of the Yorkville hills with preeminent leaders in the field.

There is a $25 event fee. The Anderson Valley Land Trust requests payment be made the day of the field trip. Cash and checks, made payable to AVLT, are acceptable.

Register with Trey Petrey, Anderson Valley Land Trust, at avlt@mcn.org or 707-895-3150. Please provide your name, email, phone number and names of any guests when you register.

Galbreath Wildlands Preserve

Margot Rawlins
We will stop at a number of sites on the preserve with some unusual wildflowers and native grass stands and gather for lunch (provided) at Madrone Camp before proceeding further into the preserve.
This event is a joint offering with the Anderson Valley Land Trust. It is the second of our two-part program. The first is Grow Wildlife Gardens on April 6. It is not necessary to have attended the first one in order to enjoy this one, but there will be connections.

Logistics and What to Bring & Expect
We will meet at 9:45 a.m. at the Yorkville Post Office on Highway 128 where we will form carpools to caravan to the preserve.
Please bring sunscreen and insect repellent. We recommend you wear layered clothing, a hat and closed-toed sturdy hiking shoes are required. Lunch will be provided by the Yorkville Market. We mostly will be caravaning through the preserve, making frequent stops, but there will be some hiking through uneven terrain.
