On the second day of the Trees and Shrubs workshop we went to Samuel P. Taylor State Park and Pt. Reyes. At Samuel P. Taylor we were in a Redwood Forest with many other trees and shrubs present. There were also a number of wildflowers still in bloom as well as some forest birds that could be heard more than seen.

At Pt. Reyes we hiked out and back along the Bay View Trail and the out and back on the road north of parking lot by Bay View Trail. The habitat is Bishop Pine Forest and mixed woodland.

To see report for the first day of the workshop go to Mitchell Canyon, Mt. Diablo: Trees, Shrubs, Birds & Wildflowers 6/13/15
