images/Isla de Cedros - Island of Fog

In January 2015 at the State CNPS Conservation Conference, participants had the opportunity to hear presentations on the region of northwest Baja Calfornia. With over 2,000 native plant taxa, of which 1,092 are endangered, endemic or rare, northwest Baja California Mexico is one of the most important, and least protected, parts of the California Floristic Province. In 2013, the CNPS founded its first chapter in over a decade to encourage the understanding and protection of this region.

Michael Uhler will walk us through his personal floristic tour of images of this desert island, located off the west coast of the Mexican state of Baja California. Michael is an avid plant lover and perennial adventurer. He works at the East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden located within Tilden Park in the Berkeley Hills.
