Doreen Smith led the Marin Chapter of the CNPS on a field trip along the trail to Kehoe Beach on Point Reyes National Seashore.
At this time of year there are still a few species to see growing in the marshes, dunes, and on the headland, including some late-bloomers uncommon elsewhere in Marin.
Some of the species seen were Mentha aquatica (water mint), Potentilla anserina ssp. pacifica (marsh cinquefoil), Madia sativa (tall robust tarplant), Horkelia californica var. californica (California horkeia), Schoenoplectus californicus (California tule), Baccharis glutinosa (marsh baccharis), Erigeron glaucus (seaside daisy), Symphyotrichum chilense (common coast aster), Abronia latifolia (yellow sand verbena), and Eriophyllum staechadifolium (lizard-tail).
These are shown in the gallery following.
