We’ll enjoy the last Sunday of Daylight Savings Time on Horn Canyon Trail in the east end of the Ojai Valley observing and discussing nature and native plants.

This will be a slow-paced walk of about 1 mile round trip with very gradual elevation gain. There is some umeven terrain in places (see photo). The outing is suitable for hikers of all levels of ability who are capable of walking that distance and standing for periods of time.

Some native plants we can expect to see include California Bay, Black Walnut, Yerba Santa, Black Sage, Coastal Sagebrush, Yucca, and the humble healer Mugwort.

After the walk, participants will receive a list of all plants identified and discussed including common and Latin names for genus, species and family of each plant. These names can be used for continuing research online and in books but there is no substitute for first-hand plant identification in the field.

Payment by cash or check is accepted on the morning of the walk. Please pre-register now by clicking the link below or by calling 805-646-6281. You also can return to this website any time and click on the event listing itself in the left sidebar on the homepage or click on the “Register for an Event” link in the same sidebar menu. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with all necessary info during the week before the event.
