Commonly known as poppies, buttercups, blue-eyed grass and fiddlenecks – these wildflowers also have scientific (Latin) names with interesting origins. With docents Teri Baron and Huey-Shin Yuan you’ll learn about etymology (the study of words and meanings), and the scientific system of binomial naming and classifying of organisms. You’ll be hiking the Dusky-footed Woodrat, Dick Bishop, and Blue Oak Trails through oak woodlands and chaparral while learning a few names and discussing the challenges of trying to classify living organisms.
