Calypso bulbosa IMG 1547c

Saturday, March 11, 10:30 a.m.

Join Kristin Jakob to search through the forest looking for the fairy slipper orchid, Calypso bulbosa. The group will also explore the trails around the upper Rock Spring meadow, enjoy a picnic lunch, then head down the Cataract Trail as far as participants wish to hike, enjoying other early wildflowers and a diverse array of ferns.

Meet at the Rock Spring parking lot on Mt. Tamalpais, located at the intersection of Ridgecrest and Pantoll Roads. This is approximately one mile uphill from the state park ranger station at Pantoll; turn uphill across the road from the ranger station. For those unfamiliar with the area, the ranger station is located on Panoramic Hwy. on the way from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach.

There is no charge to park at the Rock Spring paved lot.
