Field Trip: Olompali Wildflowers with Clint Kellner

The end of March should be a good time to see the wildflowers at Olompali. We will look for coral root orchids, serviceberry, and other spring-blooming plants. Other interesting sights include the rare Napa false indigo shrub (without any leaves) and a great example of a California fescue grassland.

Plan to hike the loop trail (2.3 miles) at Olompali, some of which is steep. Bring water and snacks, sunscreen, and rain gear if weather demands it. Entrance is off southbound Hwy 101 north of Novato. To get there, travel north on Hwy 101 and exit at the Redwood Landfill, take the overpass and continue south on Hwy 101 to the entrance. Meet in the parking lot. Parking at Olompali costs $8.
