Management of the Rare Plants and Butterflies of San Bruno Mountain

Thursday, November 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Speaker: Hannah Ormshaw

San Bruno Mountain State and County Park is a habitat island amidst a sea of urbanization, and is home to a variety of rare, threatened, and endangered plant and wildlife species – some of which occur only in this park. This talk will outline recent efforts to map and catalog rare plant populations, describe the critical habitat requirements for the four protected butterfly species found in the park, and discuss the ongoing efforts for habitat management for the benefit of these protected species.

Hannah Ormshaw is a Natural Resource Specialist for the San Mateo County Parks Department, and is the primary staff person involved in the implementation and oversight of the San Bruno Mountain Habitat Conservation Plan. She is regularly out on the mountain conducting butterfly monitoring activities, doing vegetation surveys and mapping, and coordinating habitat management activities. She is also the senior biologist for all natural resource management activities in all county parks, and is academically trained as a geographer.
