Friday, July 21, 2017 07:30pm
Contact (650) 260-3450

The Tejon Ranch, straddling the Tehachapi Mountains from the San Joaquin Valley to the Mojave Desert, occupies more than 400 square miles of varied landscapes with elevations ranging from about 500’ along the southern rim of the San Joaquin Valley to more than 6800’ along the Tehachapi crest. For the past seven years Neal has had the privilege of working with the Tejon Ranch Conservancy documenting botanical resources on Tejon Ranch. Neal will discuss some of the elements that make the Tejon Ranch a hotspot of botanical diversity, along with other interesting aspects of the Ranch flora. He will also share photos of some of the more than 40 different special status plant species currently known to occur on the Ranch.

Neal Kramer is an Independent Consulting Botanist with work focusing on rare plant surveys, plant inventories, and vegetation mapping. He received his BA in Botany from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MS in Forest Ecology from the University of Idaho. Neal enjoys plant photography and has contributed more than 16,000 images to the CalPhotos database.
