With more than 6,500 kinds of native plants, California has more kinds of plants than any other state in the United States.

Naomi Fraga (RSABG Conservation Botanist) will provide an overview to some spectacular hiking locations in southern California that are noted not only for their scenic beauty, but also for the rare and interesting plants that occur there.
