Streptanthus glandulosus ssp niger IMG 1464c 1

Saturday, May 28, 10:00 – 1:00p.m.

Serpentine outcrops are found in three main locations on the Tiburon peninsula: on Ring Mountain and Old St. Hilary’s, two of Marin County’s preserves, and on the Middle Ridge, a Town of Tiburon Open Space parcel. Eva Buxton, who for several years has led a habitat restoration effort funded by Marin CNPS for federally- and state-listed species, will lead a hike of approximately 1.5 miles on mostly flat ground to see some of the rare species, including Tiburon jewelflower and Marin dwarf flax, as well as other species that grow on and off serpentine soils. Due to plenty of rainfall this season, the rare plants should be out in profusion.

Meet on Gilmartin Drive with the Preserve on your left. From Hwy 101, take Tiburon Blvd. East, for 2.9 miles to Gilmartin Dr. Make a left and drive uphill for 0.5 mile and park along the curb.

Dress in layers; bring sunhat and sunscreen, lunch, and water. Heavy rain cancels.
