Autumn in Mount Madonna with Andy Werner, CNPS

October 22, 2019, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Our late October field trip to Mount Madonna of approximately 7 miles and 1,500 feet ascent will mainly be a new route with some new plants to ID. We’ll savor the sights, smells, and ambiance of nature in this wonderful park. We’ll hike uphill in the morning and downhill in the afternoon after lunch. Our route will be the Contour Trail, Ridge Trail, Bayview Trail, and Blackhawk Trail. Our pace will be moderate. Bring water and lunch. Arrive early; we depart on time. Photo by Cliff Halverson.

This is a CALIFORNIA NATIVE PLANT SOCIETY field trip. Please don’t sign-up unless you love botany and nature. With a few exceptions, CNPS field trips are nature hikes, not a ‘get your heart rate up’ hike.

Many of our field trips have a waitlist, therefore, you may be blocked from future CNPS hikes if you are a no-show.

Everyone must sign up themselves—your name must be on the “Attendees (Going)” list to be able to join the group. Most of our hikes have a limited number of participants.

Be sure to check your email just before the outing as occasionally an outing must be cancelled at the last minute. Also, if you are on the wait list, sometimes participants cancel the day before, moving you from the WAITLIST to GOING.

If you haven’t been to a field trip meeting location before, it is suggested that you print out the enlarged Meetup map from your computer along with the “How to find us” information and take it with you to the meeting location.
