Ecology Photo of the Month

The Morgan Fire of 2013 burned nearly 3,000 acres primarily on the east and south sides of Mount Diablo. In the spring of 2014 Nomad Ecology conducted a post-fire study of fire-following annual plants. In several of their plots fire poppy (Papaver californicum) was observed - an exciting find! Fire poppies haven’t been seen on Mount Diablo since after the 1977 fire, nearly 40 years ago.

    Sand Dunes of Oakley, California

    Friends of Marsh Creek General Meeting, February 2, 2012 7pm

    Liberty High School District Offices, 20 Oak Street, Brentwood

    Nomad Principal and Senior Botanist Heath Bartosh will be lecturing about the sandmounds of Oakley, California. These scattered deposits of wind-blown sands from the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers harbor an assemblage of unusual plants which constitute a vegetation community unique to this region, and which has largely gone unnoticed by the scientific community. While much of the dune area and attendant plants have been destroyed by development, significant pockets of intact habitat remain.
