Chews Ridge Wildflowers with Michael Mitchell, CNPS

May 25, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join Michael Mitchell, co-author of Monterey County Wildflowers—a field guide and the second edition of Corky Matthews’ The Plants of Monterey County—an Illustrated Field Key on this special traditional outing. As the highest public road in Monterey County, Chews Ridge always offers a unique variety of plants. There will be several stops with easy to moderate hikes of a mile or two. All wheel or 4WD vehicles are recommended. Limit of 12.

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.

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.
