Our Chapter will hold its 45th annual Wildflower Show on Saturday, April 27th from 9:30am - 4pm at West Valley College in Saratoga. This year’s theme is Citizen Science. A variety of free lectures will be offered, including a training session by Matteo Garbelotto from the UC Berkeley Forest Pathology and Mycology Laboratory for the Saratoga Sudden Oak Death (SOD) Blitz, and a talk and demonstration by Ken-ichi Ueda, the co-founder of iNaturalist.
This family–friendly event features hundreds of native wildflowers and plants on display and a variety of tours, including a tour of the Vasona Creek Restoration Project. A selection of native plants and native plant art, t-shirts, books and other related goods will be available for purchase. The event and parking are all free to the public.
