A group of 9 people enjoyed a Field Trip to the Jepson-Trail at Tomales Bay State Park led by Carolyn Lonstreth, Doreen Smith, and Tom Gaman. The weather was warm and we appreciated the shade along the trails. Many plants were seen, some still in bloom, including Frangula californica (coffee-berry), Calystegia purpurata ssp. purpurata (coastal morning-glory), Corethrogyne filaginifolia (sand-aster), Arctostaphylos virgata (Marin manzanita), Piperia elongata (tall green rein-orchid), Elymus californicus (California bottle-brush grass), Vaccinium ovatum (evergreen huckleberry), Arctostaphylos glandulosa subsp. cushingiana (Cushing manzanita), Blechnum spicant (deer fern), Lonicera involucrata  ssp. ledebourii (Ledebour’s honeysuckle), Cicuta maculata ssp. bolanderi (water hemlock), Sparganium erectum (burr-reed), Schoenoplectus americanus (winged three-square), and Campanula californica (marsh harebell).
