March 26: Wantrup Wildflowers
Leader: Elaine de Man; Guide: JoeJoe Clark
Rating: Moderate, 8 m, 1-2k ft elevation gain
Please note, this is NOT a fitness hike but rather a leisurely walk (though uphill much of the way) along the scenic trails of the 730-acre Wantrup Preserve in Pope Valley. We’ll begin in the lovely grassland and oak savannah on the valley floor, stop to visit the pond, then climb at a moderate pace through oak and mixed evergreen woodlands toward the southwest corner of the preserve.
There will be ample opportunity to enjoy great views of this quiet, rural part of Napa County and learn about many of the blooming wildflowers from one of Napa County’s leading botanists, JoeJoe Clark.
Field Trip registration closes three (3) days prior to the event date.
