Our serpentine hillsides, like those on Pine Mountain, host half of the watershed’s rare plant species, even though many plants can’t tolerate this unique soil. Pine Mountain is home to nine different rare plants and our state flower (California poppy) and state bird (California valley quail). In fact, serpentine is California’s state rock! Unfortunately there is one intruder that wishes to disrupt the neighborhood—goatgrass, an invasive annual grass and one of the few weeds that can grow in serpentine soil. Get introduced to our rare plant species on the hike up the hill to Pine Mountain and then restore their habitat! Meeting time and location: 9:00 a.m. at the Azalea Hill parking lot (off of Bolinas-Fairfax Road).
