Thursday to Monday, October 24-28, 2019: Baja Conservation Field Trip:

Have you been hearing about conservation efforts in Baja over the last few years? Have you been curious how you can get involved? Now's your chance! CNPS-SGM chapter board member, Katie Gallagher, has spent a number of years on a research and land management project at a nature preserve near San Quintin, Baja California. This year, she is opening up her project to members and friends of both CNPS and Southern California Botanists (SCB)! Spend less than two days helping control Tamarisk, an invasive tree, then spend two days exploring the wonders of the native desert habitats. Drive through forests of cardon cacti and boojum trees, stand in one place and touch nine different cactus species, and camp in one of the last intact sand dunes in western North America.

All nights will be spent camping, so bring your own food. Speaking Spanish is not necessary. You will need passport, international health insurance, and car insurance. We will carpool and caravan down from Pasadena’s Eaton Canyon Nature Center early in the morning on Thursday, October 24, 2019, and return by the evening of Monday, October 28, 2019.
