Event: WILD Napa: Serpentine, Rare Plants, and Fire
Date:Wed, Sep 13th 2017, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location:Napa Main Library, 580 Coombs St, Napa ~ Community Room
Snell Valley’s serpentine plant communities have long been regarded as a botanical gem of Napa County and the Bay Region. “Serpentine” refers to a soil type that is unfriendly to many native plants, but supports others that have evolved to cope with heavy metals and little nutrients. A number of these serpentine-adapted species are found only in our area of California! Join LTNC Stewardship Program Manager, Mike Palladini, as he highlights efforts to restore degraded serpentine meadows using prescribed fire.
