Why do plants grow where they grow? In nature, plants grow in readily identifiable communities or associations united by location (soil, topography, and microclimate). Join Arvind Kumar and Ashok Jethanandani as we explore the common plant communities of the South Bay. Beginners interested in plant identification are welcome; prior knowledge of native plants or botany is not required.

We will take the Arrowhead Loop Trail in Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve, which goes through grassland, chaparral, and oak woodland. Expect to see serpentine outcrops and unique native plants that grow in this inhospitable medium. The distance covered is 4 miles with 600’ of elevation gain/loss.

Bring a hat, water, a bag lunch, and your favorite trail accessories (camera/smartphone/hand lens/binoculars/field guide/none). Dress in layers, and appropriately for winter weather. Heavy rain cancels. For more information contact Arvind at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (408) 715-7020.

Directions: The park is located at 550 Palm Ave.in Morgan Hill. From Hwy 101, take Bailey Ave. west. Turn Left on Santa Teresa Blvd. Turn right on Palm Ave. The preserve is at the end of Palm Ave. We’ll meet in the parking lot.
