Mt. Burdell Wildflowers 4/15/18

Today we went on a wildflower walk at Mt. Burdell sponsored by the Marin Open Space District and  Marin Chapter of the California Native Plants Society. It was led by Shannon Burke, naturalist for the Marin Open Space District. Many species are in bloom although there are not many large displays. The walk was in celebration of Native Plant Week. To see more Native Plant Week activities in Marin County go to

Favorite plants of the day were  Bitteroot/Lewisia rediviva and Striped Coralroot/Corallorhiza striata.
