Wintertime and the livin’ is easy. Grass is growing and the hills are all green…at least that’s how it works here in California. Nearly all the grasses you’ll see and learn to identify on this hike, or any other hike you take on District lands, are annuals that are native to Europe. What happened to all of California’s native perennial grasses and the meadows of wildflowers they supported? Which, if any, of these non-native invasive grasses is the District actively combating and why? Join docents Frances Reneau and Helena Cohen to discuss these questions. Capable, attentive children 8 years and older are welcome.
