Plants and Petroglyphs Desert Trip

Petroglyphs by Bud Walley, Google Earth

There is still time to get in on this truly unique and exciting treasure Hunt! Not only will we be looking for rare plants but we will be looking for Petroglyphs as well! This trip will be just north of Barstow, so it's not far from the LA area. We will be meeting Friday March 25th and ending the night of Sunday, March 27th (there is also the possibility of meeting us Saturday morning, if you can't join us Friday). Please RSVP to for a full itinerary.
The rare Mentzelia tridentata, Three toothed Blazing Star, rare plant rank 1B.3

We will be searching for the Blazing star pictured above, as well as the Barstow Woolly sunflower, the rare desert springparsley and others. It should be amazing trips for experts and novices alike!


  1. I wish I could go too. I am going to have to pay attention to your dates in the future and see if I can overlap something with travel down to California. Good luck, the image of the Three toothed Blazing Star is gorgeous.

  2. Thanks! and yes let's get you out on a trip!
