Trip to a Marin Island

Saturday, May 6, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

Meg Marriott of the National Wildlife Refuge system has invited Marin CNPS to visit East Marin Island in San Pablo Bay!
One of two tiny Marin Islands north of the Richmond-San Rafael bridge, East Marin Island contains some spectacular native flora, including three species of rein orchid. It is hoped that our chapter can apply its expertise to detect some species that have not been previously documented by the NWR staff!
We will travel to East Island in a 21-foot Whaler boat. Limited to 15 participants. If you would like to attend, please contact Carolyn at and she will email you directions to the launch site.
