Join Reserve staff for a tour of the Donald and Sylvia McLaughlin Natural Reserve, a unit in the UC Natural Reserve System located near Lower Lake in Napa and Lake Counties. The reserve protects about 7,000 acres of unusual habitats, including serpentine soils as well as riparian woodland, blue oak woodland and savannah, grassland, and chaparral.

Late April is prime wildflower season and there should be a variety of flowers to see and enjoy. The iNaturalist list for the reserve includes 468 plant taxa. We will explore different areas of the reserve on foot and by vehicle. The visit will be led by reserve staff and will last most of the day. The group will need to arrive punctually and leave all at the same time.

The McLaughlin Reserve is managed by UC Davis and is not generally open to the public. It is located about a 3- hour drive from our CNPS SCV Chapter office in Palo Alto.

This trip is for CNPS members only (please ensure your membership is up to date or join). Space is limited. No drop-ins please. To register and for more information please contact trip organizer Sue Kelso directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Detailed trip information will be emailed to registered participants closer to the trip date.
