Natural History Walk at Taft Nature Preserve

May 7, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Please note: This event is presented by the Conservation Endowment Fund, stewards of Taft Gardens & Nature Preserve. To register for the event, please visit them at this link or email taftgardensvisitors@gmail.com. Registrants will receive an email with detailed directions. Please do not try to find the venue by using other maps or GPS.

Please join me for a Natural History Walk at Taft Nature Preserve on Saturday, May 7, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., meeting at 8:45 a.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!

The $35 cost includes a $10 donation to benefit the Conservation Endowment Fund, the non-profit steward of Taft Gardens & Nature Preserve. The donation portion of the fee is tax-deductible. Space is limited so register today at this Taft Gardens link or email 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!
