Rick Halsey of the California Chaparral Institute talked to residents of Del Dios today about wildfire, wildflowers, and the future of the chaparral in our area. Then he led a walk through part of the San Dieguito River Park to illustrate his words. Here's a photo that Janet took of the talk:
As you can see, they do these things nicely in Del Dios, with music, a potluck, organized by Michelle DePriest. The walk took about 35 to 40 participants of all ages through a part of the park that is closed to the general public, and many interesting plants and insects were found including a nice stand of Phacelia grandiflora - the latest act in nature's big wildflower show this year.
Rick will be doing another presentation and wildflower walk at the Elfin Forest Garden Festival on April 26th, 2008. Read about it here and reserve your tickets.
