Ring Mountain Rove

Sunday, May 28, 2017
9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Free - Reservations Required
Ring Mountain Open Space Preserve
Corte Madera, Marin County

Hidden among the strange metamorphic rocks of Ring Mountain is the rare and endemic Tiburon Mariposa Lily. We’ll search for this botanic jewel, as well other flowers that survive and even flourish in serpentine soils.

We’ll also view unusual geological features and learn why geologists exclaim “Oh schist!” when someone mentions Ring Mountain.
