Bryophyte Walk at Almaden Quicksilver Park 
Saturday, February 18, 2023 09:30am

Join John T. McLaughlin, SJSU Biological Sciences Graduate Student, and Ben Carter, botany professor, for a 2 mile walk to learn about bryophytes (mosses, liverworts and hornworts) of the Bay Area. This is an entry-level walk that will emphasize seeing different bryophyte species in nature and learning about their morphology, ecology and natural history.

There may be some moderate uphill climbs, but we’ll be moving very slowly. Bring a hand lens if you have one. Bring lunch, snacks and liquids. We’ll head out in any conditions except for heavy rain.

We will meet at the Mockingbird Hill Entrance: 19535 Mockingbird Hill Ln, San Jose, CA 95120. For more about the park, including a trail map, visit Driving directions are at
