 Guide: Marin County Parks naturalist Shannon Burke.

Come celebrate California Native Plant Week with Marin County Parks and the California Native Plant Society. The coastal bluffs along the outer reaches of the Pt. Reyes Peninsula host a fantastic display of spring wildflowers. We’ll take our time identifying the species that we find as we enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.
