Third Saturday Walks


Biogeography

Like real estate professionals, retired geography professor Jean Wheeler knows the importance of “location, location, location.” She will cover why our position on our planet and proximity to the ocean results in vegetation here looking very like that of four other regions in the world, three of which are way south of the equator. Switching scales, she will also indicate how changes in location bring about such noticeable differences in our plants in short distances as we walk with her around our boardwalk.


January 21, 9:30 a.m.
Wear comfortable shoes and layers in case of fog or wind.
Meet at the north end of 15th St. in Los Osos.
