Please note: This event is presented by the Conservation Endowment Fund (CEF), stewards of Taft Gardens & Nature Preserve. They are handling all registrations. To register for the event, please visit this page or email taftgardensvisitors@gmail.com. Future walks are now scheduled for March 11 and April 8.

Registrants will receive an email from CEF with detailed directions. Please do not try to find the venue by using other maps or GPS. Allow plenty of time to find the venue and to make your way up the miles-long driveway.

Please join me for a Natural History Walk at Taft Nature Preserve on Saturday, March 4, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., meeting at 12:45 p.m. We will explore trails through the wild parts of the property, identify and discuss native plants, and observe birds and animal tracks in the context of local ecology. This event is a perfect fit with my personal mission to open a space for people to connect with the natural world, starting with the plant community. And Taft Gardens and Nature Preserve is an amazing place! In fact, it was recently featured in an L. A. Times article on “The 16 Most Beautiful and Inviting Public Gardens in Southern California.”

The $35 cost includes a $10 donation to benefit the CEF, the non-profit steward of Taft Gardens & Nature Preserve. The donation portion of the fee is tax-deductible. Space is limited so please register today by email to taftgardensvisitors@gmail.com.

I will have my mobile bookshop onsite after the walk, including my new book, Medicinal Herbs of California, and Milt McAuley’s classic Wildflowers of the Santa Monica Mountains which features every plant we will see.

Please plan on leaving dogs and cigarettes at home. Thanks!
