Evening Primrose Plant Survey | Antioch

Wild Equity will be helping to conduct the 2016 plant survey of the endangered Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose at the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge in Contra Costa County.

It’s a great opportunity to visit a special place that is not always open to the public. There are plenty of wildflowers and butterflies to enjoy, and you’ll be helping to gather data that will used to keep this species alive and safe from extinction.

This is a rare opportunity to work with an endangered species that is endemic to a very small local area. Join and experience and service this unique and imperiled ecosystem. 

  • What to Wear: long pants (there can be scratchy plants and stickers), layered clothing, and sturdy walking shoes.
  • What to Bring: lunch and water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and gaitors if you like to use them to keep plant parts out of your socks Raingear is optional (you never know).
  • Morning temperatures can be chilly. The walk will happen all day (with several breaks) on mixed, sometimes hilly terrain, with some plants/trees to step over, under and around. That means good exercise, fresh air, wildlife and wildflowers to see and enjoy.

Please note: Antioch Dunes NWR (Contra Costa County) have two separate units, Stamm and Sardis, each about 1 mile apart from each other. 5/25 will be in Stamm Unit and 5/26 will be in Sardis Unit.
