Join Paul Heiple and Ken Himes to learn about the five species of Quercus, the true oaks, that occur in Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve.

Our oak hike will be along a partial loop of about 4 miles on the Clarkia Trail, Serpentine Trail, Sylvan Trail, and Live Oak Trail to see the scrub oaks. In addition, we’ll see at least two hybrid oaks. Hopefully, we will have a good crop of acorns to help with oak ID. We’ll also feature oak galls, which are another aid to identify oaks.

Bring a hat, sunscreen, water and snacks. Wear sturdy footwear. Bring a hand lens or loupe if you have one.

We’ll meet at the Clarkia trailhead on Cañada Road at 9am sharp.

Directions: See parking info for this hike on our Chapter Meetup’s meetup page, www.meetup.com/California-Native-Plant-Society-Santa-Clara-Valley-Chapter/
