Have you ever wondered about the scientific names of local trees? Join docents Frances Reneau and Gerri Tiernan who will share meanings and stories behind the Greek and Latin terminology and the names of historical botanists. A special feature of this slow-paced discovery walk with frequent stops will be a visit to a small, over-looked grove of California nutmeg (Torreya californica) trees at the turnaround of your out-and-back excursion.

Where to Meet: 

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Montebello Road. From the intersection of I-280 and Foothill Expressway, go 3.5 miles southwest (toward the mountains) on Foothill Boulevard/Stevens Canyon Road.  Turn right on Montebello Rd.  The Preserve is 0.5 miles up Montebello Rd. on the left.
