Just wrapped up 4 days of parallel trapping at Rancho Marino and Fiscalini Ranch Preserve about 2 km away. Here are some photos!

Fiscalini Ranch Preserve mixed grassland transect. Don has kindly offered to characterise the grass community during he and Miranda’s “grass walk” later in the season.
Fiscalini Ranch Preserve coastal scrub. Huge difference between this and that at Rancho Marino. Complete dominance by Lupine, Lizard Tail, California Poppy.
