May 5th – Micro-climates and habitats of San Pedro Valley Park.  Mike Vasey leads a hike from SPVCP to Montara and San Pedro Mountain Trails, Starts with talk at SPVCP, 10 AM – 4 PM Mike Vasey will give a brief talk in the Visitor’s Center at 10 AM about the microclimates and micro-habitats of San Pedro Valley Park followed by a hike up the Brooks Falls and Montara Mountain trails to the fire road and then down to some outstanding rocky outcrops above the saddle between Montara Mountain and San Pedro Mountain.

These rocky outcrops present an outstanding garden of native species like fairy lanterns, purple onion, and sedum – a host plant for the rare San Bruno Elfin butterfly. The hike is challenging but beautiful. Return the way we came or stage a car at the end of Springwood Way (which connects to Old San Pedro Road directly below the rocky outcrop) and descend from there”

The hike is not for the faint of heart. Total round trip is 7.5 miles with a pretty big elevation gain. Will take about 4.5 hours. Pack a lunch and drinks. Check this site for updated info: http://friendsofsanpedrovalleypark.org/event/plant-micro-habitats-in-san-pedro-park-and-vicinity/
