Ken Himes Day

Saturday, June 20, 2015, 2015, 9 am

Meet at West Kiosk. Free.

Work with Edgewood Weed Warriors to help the wildflowers blossom by removing invasive, non-native species that choke out the flowers’ habitats. The efforts are led by experienced California Native Plant Society Santa Clara Valley Chapter volunteers. Don’t do this on your own! The work is dirty, but the view is great. Find out more about habitat restoration at Edgewood here.

With fishhooks that latch into your socks, hairy parachutes, or exploding pods, Edgewood’s plants have remarkable methods for moving seeds. Join Friends of Edgewood docents on this introductory walk to explore plant strategies for dispersing seeds. Walk about 3 miles, at a moderate pace, with frequent stops.
