Mt. Burdell Open Space contains over 1500 acres of oak-woodland, grassland and small creek habitat. Many patches of serpentine and volcanic rock make it equal to, but very different from Chimney Rock, (located at Point Reyes) in terms of floral diversity. We will focus on the color and shape of the flowers while watching insects pollinators. Birds, butterflies and other insects will be included in our exploration at the peak of the wildflower season. It is not required but strongly recommended to take the companion class “Coastal Wildflowers of Chimney Rock” for an interesting comparative study of inland and costal wildflowers. Also open to youth (age 15 to 17) with attending parent.
