Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen presents a program on wildflowers on Saturday, April 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Bouverie Preserve biologist Jeanne Wirka will lead a class exploring the amazing world of angiosperms (flowering plants) at the preserve. Throughout the 535-acre preserve there are approximately 200 species of wildflowers. Participants may find sky and bicolored lupine, popcorn flower, ground iris, red larkspur, baby blue eyes, mission bells, purple owl’s clover and shooting stars, among others. Wirka will discuss basic flower identification techniques using a variety of field guides. Participants will also learn the key characteristics of different plant families that will help in recognizing species.

Participants should bring a lunch, dress in layers and wear hiking shoes or boots. The cost is $25 and class size is limited. Please RSVP by April 1 by calling 415-868-9244 or email rsvp@egret.org. The Bouverie Preserve is located at 13935 Sonoma Hwy., Glen Ellen.
