Meet at 8:30 a.m. in Glen Rose at the Brookshire’s parking lot. We will travel from there to stop and see a recently discovered rare plant species for North Texas near Glen Rose. From there, we will head on to Chalk Mountain Ranch. This will be a hike in easy to moderate terrain, up to 2 miles. Please bring plenty of water. It is optional, but the plan afterwards will be to eat at Hammonds BBQ in Glen Rose. Here’s a small sampling of what you might expect to see: Plateau Milk Vine (Matelea edwardsensis), Plains Fleabane (Erigeron modestus), Gray Golden Aster (Heterotheca canescens), Barbara’s Buttons (Marshallia caespitosa var. signata), Slender Greenthread (Thelesperma simplicifolium), Pineapple Cactus (Coryphantha sulcata), Pink Mimosa (Mimosa borealis), Engelmann Sage (Salvia engelmannii), Rock Flax (Linum rupestre), Thin Leaf Brookweed (Samolus valerandi ssp. parviflorus) and Gray Vervain (Verbena canescens).
