My name is Eric John Diesel. I am field trips chair for CNPS Riverside-San Bernardino Chapter. I am a statistician and neuroethicist living part time in SF, LA, the Mojave Desert, and along Hwy 395, doing volunteer work with the elderly in each area.
The diverse knowledge of this group's membership always makes for a great hiking experience.
