It’s easy to overlook plants sometimes, but once you get to know the species and how they work together to support an ecosystem, they are amazing! Learn about museum collections with one of our scientists and then take an easy hike in park with us! San Felasco has a variety of micro-habitats, so there are a wide variety of plants to explore and identify, as well as a number of birds and other animals to observe.
