BIG BEAR, SAN BERNARDINO MOUNTAINS MAY 2004
PAGE ONE
Photographs by Michael Charters




This photo gallery is being put together many years later but is composed of photographs taken on a Jepson Herbarium workshop in the area of Big Bear Valley in the San Bernardino Mountains. The workshop was led by Tim Krantz who is a professor of environmental studies at the University of Redlands and probably knows the flora of the San Bernardinos better than anyone. During the three days of the workshop we explored the North Baldwin Lake Preserve, botanized through the Holcomb Valley, visited Cushenbury Canyon, Bluff Lake Preserve and Lemon Lily Springs. It was the third of what has become a total of 20 Jepson workshops that I have attended so far, and I can only hope that there will be more. An asterisk next to a common name indicates a non-native species.
