Join Natalie to learn 10-15 of the dominant chaparral plants of Santa Barbara. We will hike about 1 mile up this moderate trail while discussing the ecology and composition of this unique and characteristic plant community.

The hike will begin at Fremont Ridge Trailhead on East Camino Cielo. The trailhead is located 1.6 miles east from the intersection of Hwy 154 and East Camino Cielo.

Participants should bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, a jacket and sun protection.

She is currently working to understand how California's jewelflowers (plants in the genus Streptanthus), will evolve in response to future climate change. She loves teaching and has experience teaching at many levels from junior high to college. As a Santa Barbara native, she enjoys botanizing in the mountains on weekends and geeking out in the Botanic Garden during all times of the year.
