From Sea to Sky: Exploring the Ecology of Rancho Corral de Tierra

Thursday, July 13 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Ascending from the coast to 1,800 feet in less than two miles, Rancho Corral de Tierra is a spectacular National Park located on the western flanks of Montara Mountain, in San Mateo County. Rancho’s elevation range, varied terrain, unique soils, and maritime influence all give rise to a complex mosaic of vegetation and habitat types, which support a variety of endemic species. In this talk, you will explore Rancho’s environmental setting, natural communities, and historical ecology, with special emphasis on the conservation story of the endangered Hickman’s potentilla (Potentilla hickmanii).

Speaker Eric Wrubel is a biologist for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Mateo County, where he works on endangered species recovery, habitat conservation, and ecological restoration. He has over 20 years of experience in botanical work across California, and is especially fond of grasses, sedges, and rushes.
