Saturday, June 9, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm – Field Trip – Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve with Deanna Giuliano…Cal Fish and Wildlife Ecological Reserve, Martin Road
Join Deanna Giuliano on a 4-5 mile loop hike through this local gem, a biological island set in the inland marine sand deposits unique to Santa Cruz County. In addition to seeing several endemic and disjunct species, we’ll take in a snapshot of post-fire recovery nearly 10 years after the Martin Fire. There should be plenty of flowers to admire, including dazzling trail sections that take us through populations of Ceanothus and other shrubs in full bloom.
