Join Don Thomas to see the endemic western leatherwood (Dirca occidentalis) at Rancho San Antonio on the Wildcat Canyon Trail. It has been many years since we visited this, the second southernmost population of dirca. (We have recently seen the southernmost population at Stevens Creek County Park.)

We will also see some early emerging woodland plants in flower. There will be some moderate but slow-paced hill climbing, with a stop for lunch. As an exercise in rare plant documentation, we will fill out a CNPS Rare Plant Treasure Hunt form. Bring lunch, water and warm clothes.

Directions: Because the parking lots at Rancho San Antonio can be expected to be full, we will meet at the Montclaire Elementary School at 1160 St Joseph Ave. in Los Altos and walk the few blocks to the St. Joseph entrance of Rancho San Antonio and then walk past Deer Hollow Farm to the Wildcat Canyon Trail.
