Session Description: Walk in a splendid natural area with palms, ocean beaches, and natural populations of crop wild relatives. We should see relatives of foxtail millets, moss roses, sunflower and more and we hope to collect seeds from the millets and moss roses. There are also bird to watch and historical touring; a great outdoor experience. This foray is part of a plant exploration seeking new research seed samples.
