Plant Communities of the South Bay, a walk in Coyote Valley OSP (Morgan Hill) 
Sunday, February 19, 2023 10:00am
 

Why do plants grow where they grow? In nature, plants grow in readily identifiable communities or associations united by location (soil, topography, and microclimate). Join Arvind Kumar and Ashok Jethanandani as we explore the common plant communities of the South Bay such as grassland, scrub, chaparral, and oak woodland. Beginners interested in plant identification are welcome; prior knowledge of native plants or botany is not required.

We will take the Arrowhead Loop Trail in Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve, which goes through grassland, chaparral, and oak woodland. Expect to see serpentine outcrops and unique native plants that grow in this inhospitable medium. The distance covered is 4 miles with 600’ of elevation gain/loss.

Bring a hat, water, a bag lunch, and your favorite trail accessories (camera/smartphone/hand lens/binoculars/field guide/none). Dress in layers, and appropriately for winter weather. Heavy rain cancels.

Space is limited so please reserve your spot by going to our Chapter’s Meetup page to sign up.
