"North Coast Rare Plant Projects and Volunteer Needs" The California Native Plant Society (CNPS)invites the public to "North Coast Rare Plant Projects and Volunteer Needs," two presentations by David Imper and Greg O'Connell. Dave Imper will introduce the Red Mountain Two-flowered Pea Preserve, established by CNPS members on the northern border of the Lassics Wilderness, in unique serpentine soils that support the only known population of Lathyrus biflorus. A conservation easement has been established, and monitoring and habitat maintenance will be required. Dave hopes the North Coast Chapter will provide volunteers and raise funds. Greg O'Connell will describe the goals of the Big Lagoon Bog restoration project, and the CNPS Rare Plant Treasure Hunt program. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for refreshments, socializing, and sales. The North Coast Chapter of CNPS offers free public programs on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May. 822-2015, www.northcoastcnps.org.
