Alkali vernal pools in North Livermore - home to the palmate-bracted bird's beak

Update (Sept 9th, 2012): Our workshop was a huge success garnering some 14 botanical volunteers for the day!  We will post more about the results soon.  Thanks to everyone who attended and we’re sorry to have to turn down volunteers due to the limited capacity of this workshop.  More to come…

Golden Hour is working on offering a rare plant mapping and monitoring course that will introduce students to the basics of rare plant mapping, monitoring and stewardship.  We hope to assemble a small but cohesive team that will map a rare California annual wildflower [Palmate-bracted bird’s beak] in its Western-most occurrence.  This plant flowers in the heat of August and is limited to a small alkaline soil environment in north Livermore.

Please email Lech (at) if you are interested in participating in this unique workshop.  Limited to 12.  Cost: Free.  Date: TBD – mid-August.
