It's Ceanothus time. For all you ceanothus lovers out there, we have put together a couple of events that reinforce each other:

Natives for Novices

"How to choose the Ceanothus that's right for you and how to take care of it when you get it home."

  • Speaker - Debbie Creassy of Tree of Life Nursery
  • 6:30pm to 7:00pm
  • Casa Del Prado, Room 104. 


This year we are opening our Sunday "advanced plant lovers' field trips" to anyone, CNPS member or not, who wants to participate in the pleasures of identifying CA native plants found around San Diego County. We will try to identify everything we see on each trip! A bonus this year, is we hope to visit enough places so we will also view every one of the 17 native Ceanothus taxa (species or subspecies) in our county. We may add some locations to this tentative list, so we can be sure to reach that goal:

  • February 24: Carmel Mountain Preserve and Torrey Pines Extension (Dave Flietner)
  • March 3: Tecolote Canyon South-Facing Slopes (Jim Roberts)
  • March 10: Torrey Highlands and Crest Canyon (Fred Roberts)
  • March 24: Wrights Field, Alpine
  • April 7: Cedar Creek Gorge via Ant Mountain and McGee Flats (Cindy Buxton)
  • April 14: Ramona Grasslands or other site, tba
  • April 28: San Elijo Lagoon (David Varner)
  • May 5: Crestridge Ecological Preserve
  • May 12: Cottonwood Creek (Neil Bouscaren)
  • May 19: McCain Valley (Tim Cass)
  • August/September date tba: Plants of Lake Henshaw & Warner Springs vicinity (Fred Roberts)
