Third Saturday Walks


In honor of California Native Plant Week, butterfly enthusiast Pat Brown will lead a walk from the point of view of a hungry butterfly. As you tour the Elfin Forest with her, Pat will introduce you to several native plants and talk about the butterflies that sip their nectar and the caterpillars that eat their leaves. She’ll lead you to hangouts of the Variable Checkerspot and other butterflies that make the Elfin Forest their home. She recommends that you bring a pair of close-focusing (5-10 ft.) binoculars

April 22, 9:30 a.m.
Wear comfortable shoes and layers in case of fog or wind.
Meet at the north end of 15th St. in Los Osos.
