Dec 11 Eaton Canyon Plant Walk

  • to
  • Eaton Canyon Nature Center

    1750 N Altadena Dr, Pasadena, CA (map)

    34.176525 -118.098633

  • Ecologist and entomologist (insect specialist) Hartmut Wisch leads this leisurely walk, about 2 hours, through the native plant garden that surrounds the Eaton Canyon Nature Center, then into the nearby wild areas. The walk is different each time — what's leafing out, flowering, in seed, etc., determines what the hike leader will talk about — and different California Native Plant Society (CNPS) and Nature Center leaders bring different points of view.

    Hartmut is an entomologist by training, so you will learn not only about plants and other standing natural features, but also about plant-pollinator interactions.

    Meet in front of Eaton Canyon Nature Center at 9:00 a.m.

    Sponsored by California Native Plant Society (CNPS) San Gabriel Chapter. For more information and notification of changes for weather conditions, click here for the CNPS San Gabriel Mountains Chapter website.

    I really would like to go but have no car. Is anyone coming from the NoHo/Burbank/Glendale area?

    NOTE: The primary purpose of this walk is to inform people about the native plants growing around the Nature Center and nearby riverbed (alluvial scrub) area. In addition, any animal life (insect, bird, reptile, amphibian or mammal) that we may encounter will be identified and discussed. If you are just looking for a through hike to the EC Waterfall, this event is not for you. Meet in front of Eaton Canyon Nature Center at 9:00 a.m. Eaton Canyon Plant walks are held on the second Sunday of each month except July and August.

    Sorry, I won't be able to attend this event, I will be out of town this week. I know Hartmut will provide interesting information about our native plants and insects.
