Mimulus douglasii sm

Mimulus douglasii  (purple mouse-ears)                                      

9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

This field trip is also a co-trip with the Milo Baker (Sonoma) CNPS Chapter to Mt. Burdell to see the earliest wildflowers.
Starting from the Open Space gate at the end of San Andreas Dr., we’ll take the fire road east to a serpentine outcrop that’s usually populated with many different native species, then we’ll explore further on the Michako Trail. A short circuit via San Marin Fire Road will return us to our starting point. Hike will go to lunch time or later.
Maps of Mt. Burdell trails can be downloaded from the Marin County Parks website.
