Beginners’ Wildflower ID Walk at Stile Ranch (Santa Teresa CP, San Jose) 
Sunday, April 14, 2019 10:00am
 
Contact RSVP via meetup.com (search for “California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter”) to reserve a spot.

The serpentine hills of Stile Ranch are home to a rich diversity of native annual and perennial wildflowers and the display this year is expected to be particularly exuberant. Join Arvind Kumar and Ashok Jethanandani on this walk to learn to identify the common wildflowers of our area. We will also examine the foliage and fruit of each species, to get a leg up on recognizing them out of bloom.

On this loop hike, we will go up the Stile Ranch Trail and return via the Fortini Trail. The distance covered will be 2.6 miles with 450’ of elevation gain/loss. Bring a hat, water, lunch, and your favorite trail accessories (camera/ smartphone/hand lens/binoculars/field guide/none). Dress in layers and appropriately for the weather.

RSVP via meetup.com (search for “California Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter”) to reserve a spot.

Directions: Meet at the Stile Ranch TH parking lot on San Vicente Ave. just west of the T-junction with Fortini Rd. (In Google Maps, search for “Stile Ranch Trailhead.”) Parking is limited so carpooling is recommended.
