The wind poppy has been reported on only 10% of the parks and preserves in the Bay Area. You’ll seek this lovely flower, and observe many other late bloomers, on this moderately-paced, 4- to 5-mile hike with docents Dennis Smith, Lynn Jackson, Bill Korbholz, and Laura Levin.
Meet at the Picchetti Ranch Preserve parking lot. From the intersection of I-280 and Foothill Expressway, go 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road. Turn right on Montebello Road. The preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
Events subject to change. Please always check the MROSD page for this event before you go.
