One of the many rare plants found here in Marin County is an inconspicuous nodding white lily called the fragrant fritillary. We’ll visit a small population that usually blooms around this time of year. We will then head up the trail to see some other early flowering species such as shooting star, milkmaids, star lily, and maybe a few surprises. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the morning of the walk for a recorded message to see if the walk is cancelled. David Herlocker will lead. Questions: contact David at (415) 893-9508 or DHerlocker@marincounty.org. Meet at the gate on Simmons Ln in Novato. DIRECTIONS: from Hwy 101 in Novato, take exit 463 for San Marin Dr west, follow San Marin Dr 1.2 miles. Turn right onto Simmons Ln and follow to the end (dead end).
