San Bruno Mountain: Rare Plants & Unique Geology

Friday, May 7, 2021 - 7:00 pm | Cost: FREE


The San Francisco Gem & Mineral Society – May 2021 Virtual Meeting Program:
“San Bruno Mountain: Rare Plants & Unique Geology”

Our speaker Dr. David Nelson is an orthopedic hand surgeon and a botanist on the weekends. He has just finished a book titled “The Natural History of the San Bruno Mountains” which will be released in Fall 2022.

San Bruno Mountain is located between Highways 101 and 280 in northern San Mateo County, north of the SF airport — just across the county line south of San Francisco. Six plants grow there that are endemic to the area, that is, they do not grow anywhere else in the world. Limiting factors are the climate, topography and the soils derived from the underlying geology. The mountain, best known locally for its endangered butterflies including the Mission Blue, is also a refuge for the rare plants that provide habitat for these animals.
Come hear why rare plants are often associated with unique geology.
