May 16, 8 a.m.

Field trip: Lisa Mandelkern will guide us to a number of stops on “Westside Road,” along the Western Edge of the Sacramentos; it’s a good dirt road, so passenger cars OK. The drive is mostly through piñon/juniper land, crossing a few drainages that feature higher elevation plants. This is an all day enterprise. Meet at the east end of the Kmart parking lot.
