Bouverie wildflower class

Bouverie Audubon Preserve

Saturday April 2nd 2011 - to

On April 2, Bouverie Preserve biologist Jeanne Wirka will lead a class on wildflowers. Already starting to bloom at the preserve, this class explores those amazing angiosperms (flowering plants) that make the Bouverie Preserve so beautiful. Wirka will discuss basic flower identification techniques using a variety of field guides. Participants will also learn some of the key characteristics of different plant families that will help in recognizing species after leaving the Preserve.

Bouverie Preserve’s Backyard Naturalist Program includes time in the classroom and on the trail. Hikes may cover one-to-three miles on mildly- to moderately-strenuous terrain. Hiking books, a bag lunch and water are recommended.

Class size is limited. Cost is $25 per seminar. Bouverie Preserve is located at 13935 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen.

Registration required: or 415-868-9244.
