Report on 2018 Expedition to the Southern Gulf of California Islands of Baja California, Mexico
Monday, June 17, 2019 – 7:00 pm
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco
with Bart O’Brien, Director/Manager, Regional Parks Botanic Garden
In November of 2018, a multidisciplinary team of American and Mexican scientists (botanists, entomologists, herpetologists, ornithologists, mammologists, and others) journeyed to 14 of Baja California Sur’s southern islands from Isla Tortuga in the north to Isla Cerralvo in the south. Bart will be speaking primarily of the botanical aspects of these fascinating islands of desert vegetation and tropical dryland deciduous scrub. Surprisingly, there are a number of “Californian” plants this far south and east, but there are even more fascinating and garden-worthy plants from this area—see some of the best of them in this presentation.
