Join us at Little Uvas Open Space Preserve (LUOSP) for a couple of hours of botanical exploration in a preserve normally closed to the public. Special access for this hike has been granted by the Open Space Authority. Located in the Southern Santa Cruz Mountains, LUOSP consists primarily of serpentine hardwoods and grasslands. It includes grey pine and oak woodlands among five small spring-fed ponds. We expect to find chia (Salvia columbariae), broomrape (Aphyllon sp.), California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), serpentine leptosiphon (Leptosiphon ambiguus), owl’s clover (Castilleja sp.), Chinese houses (Collinsia heterophylla) and many more spring wildflowers.

Bring binoculars, hand lens, snacks, lunch, and water. Wear sturdy boots and sun protection as we will be on open rocky fire roads of very gradual ascents in intermittent shade.

RSVP is required to join us for the walk. Space is limited. No drop-ins please. To register, please visit our Chapter’s Meetup page at www.meetup.com/California-Native-Plant-Society-Santa-Clara-Valley-Chapter/events/284135945. Driving directions are provided on the Meetup page.
