Join David Margolies of the California Native Plant Society on this Native Plant Stroll:
Meet at the Macdonald Staging Area Parking Lot (on Redwood Road, about 1.7 miles from Skyline Blvd on the right and about 1/4 mile towards Oakland from the Redwood regional Park entrance).
Western leatherwood and Trilliums, Osoberry and Flowering Currant and much else are in bloom.
To get there from the northern East Bay, get on 13 South (go east on Ashby Avenue in Berkeley, for example) and take the Redwood Road exit.
From Oakland, go east on 35th Avenue (which turns into Redwood Road). From the southern East Bay, take 580 West to 13 North and exit at Redwood Road (immediately after the junction).
From San Francisco, take the Bay Bridge, staying to the right (but do not go to San Jose). Take 580 East, and then 24 East (towards Walnut Creek). Take the 13 South exit from 24 and then the Redwood Road exit.
Once on Redwood Road, go east (uphill). At the top of the hill you will cross Skyline Boulevard and then pass various equestrian facilities. Go down into the valley. About 1.7 miles from Skyline Boulevard, turn right into the MacDonald Staging area parking lot. If you come to the entrance to Redwood Regional Park on the left, you have gone about 1/4 mile too far.
