Sunday | July 16, 2017 | 10:00 am — 2:00 pm

Regional Parks Botanic Garden, Tilden Regional Park | Wildcat Canyon Road at South Park Drive, Berkeley, CA 94708

With the Botanic Garden’s new serpentine garden as a background and resource, supplemented by fresh plant specimens from local and far-flung serpentine sites as examples, we’ll explore the literature that magnifies the California floristic province rich serpentine specialist populations and critically examine the assumptions and data behind the story. As a foundation, we’ll look at the chemistry of serpentine soils and the extraordinary geology of serpentine.
