It’s Not Just Birds – Plants of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area

March 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

When you visit the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area (YBWA) in Davis, CA, have you ever wondered what those flowers are that are blooming along the road, in the rice fields, out in the canals? Are they native plants or introduced? There are many different plant habitats in the YBWA and they support a very wide range of flowering plants, and in this presentation we’ll identify many of the common plants that you are likely to come across while you are visiting the public areas of the YBWA on foot or by car. In this virtual presentation Charlie Russell will help you identify the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the poisonous ones.

Yolo Basin Foundation’s Flyway Nights speaker series will explore Plants of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area with Charlie Russell on Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m. virtually. Register at Charlie has a bachelor and master’s degree in plant sciences from UC Davis. He has been photographing wildflowers for 47 years. For 6 years Charlie has volunteered as a docent at Jepson Prairie Preserve and he is a certified California Naturalist.

Flyway Nights is a monthly speaker series highlighting environmental issues, natural history of Northern California and current research topics in conservation.
