Nice little patch of 20-30 plants. Population previously documented by Lowell Ahart. It's the host plant for the California Dogface, CA state insect (probably extirpated from the area). Maybe worth checking out in May or June when it's flowering.

Found this on a Merritt College Herpetology class field trip. The USGS who was conducting surveys in the area and studying the giant garter snake took our class along on a hike to witness some of their field work. It was really neat to see them install a radio transmitter into the snake so that they could monitor its movements. I highly recommend the class to anyone in the area. There will be another class this Fall 2013 semester, BIO 61D Fall Herpetology class code 40130. To apply and enroll visit the website www.peralta.edu and if you have any questions just ask me.
