May 30: Native plant outing in the Bodie Hills 

Native plant enthusiasts in an Aspen grove in May 2014 in Bodie Hills

 

Did you know that some 450 different plants species, in 73 families are known to occur in the Bodie Hills, including native plant communities that provide habitat for wildlife? Join Jeff Hunter from the Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership and Julie Anne Hopkins from the Califonia Native Plant Society on this outing to explore some of the National Forest lands, as the BLM lands in the Bodie Hills are closed to outings until July because of the Sage Grouse breeding window. We will start our outing on Masonic Road and drive on rough gravel roads, stopping at various points to look at the flora and see what is out this year.

Meet at 9am at the Bridgeport Ranger District office (Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest) on 395 - just south of Bridgeport. Participants should bring layers, sunscreen, a hat, water and a sack lunch (and a chair or something to sit on while eating lunch might be nice). Binoculars would be good as well as we might see raptors, pronghorn antelope & more. 4WD vehicles, or vehicles with high clearance are required to drive these roads. Carpooling is encouraged and we can organize it at the ranger office. We should return by around 3pm.

For more info or to RSVP, please contact Jeff Hunter at info@bodiehills.org
