    Good group of people. Variety of weather, ranging from warm sunshine at lunch to cool, drizzly fog at the start and end. Only a few calypso orchids, but they were out! Aldo good hounds-tongue, trillium, and iris. 25 total attendees, including 18 from Meetup and 7 from the Chapter schedule.

      Hi Katie--I just checked and the earliest BART that I could take from Powell departs at 7:57 and gets to Rockridge at 8:20 am. Would that work? Just realized this is the same train Ian above is referring to

      March 2, 2013

    • Bob S.

      Google maps estimates it takes about an hour and a half from Rockridge BART to Butano, going via the Bay Bridge, so leaving Rockridge by 8:30, or even 8:40, would give you plenty of time to get to Butano.
