“A Botanical Arc – Mt. Eddy to Vinegar Hill”

Guest Speaker: Dick O’Donnell

7:30 p.m. – Online Zoom Presentation

Follow Dick on a transect from Mt. Eddy in NW California, through the Siskiyou Mts of SW Oregon, and to the Blue Mountains of NE Oregon, sampling a myriad of botanical treasures along the way. Many of the areas covered are on serpentine substrates, but there will be delicious diversions.

Dick travels throughout northern California, Oregon, and Arizona every year to learn about their distinctive floras. A retired economist, he has no economic reason to do otherwise, he says. The best course of action, he adds, is to apply himself to the most rewarding undertakings and to share the findings with the botanical world. Dick takes a special interest in the plants that grow on serpentine, in particular the genera Hesperolinon (dwarf flax) and Streptanthus (jewelflower).
