This 1-day workshop presents the basics of identifying grasses using the new Jepson Manual, in addition to focusing on the identifying characteristics of common native and non-native grass species. We will learn about California’s grassland ecology, the qualities of specific native grasses for restoration, and become skilled at recognizing the basic groups and common species by working with plant samples in the classroom. We will then go out into Point Reyes National Seashore to find and identify common species in the field. Participants are encouraged to bring along a copy of the new Jepson Manual, a hand lens, and some forceps if they have them. Otherwise, all identification tools will be provided.

Louis Landon’s mission is to create a loving and peaceful world by writing, recording, and performing music from the heart. With backgrounds in jazz, Latin music, rock, pop, and classical piano, Louis brings his breadth and depth of experience to bear here. His playing and compositions are sensitive as they are complex and a diverse range of influences is more than apparent. -Keyboard Magazine Landon's latest CD release is Ten Years - A Peaceful Solo Piano Retrospective. Released on May 6, 2013, it contains 16 of Landon's best from his previously released 6 solo piano CDs spanning ten years, as well as new recordings of Peaceful, Freefalling, and Camelot. For those who choose a creative life, being creative is something you must do. In fact, you cannot not do it. Creating his own music, on his own terms is something that emanates from Landon as effortlessly as breathing.LEARN MORE

“E-I-E-I-OY!” IN BED WITH THE FARMER’S DAUGHTER
Vivien Straus (writer & performer) grew up on her family’s dairy in Marshall, then ran away from the farm to become an actress. “E-i-E-i-Oy!” (or, as Vivien also calls it, “Jerseys, Jerks & Jews”) is an
“85% true autobiographical coming-ofage tale” about stumbling home with a Czech refugee who stays the night and then refuses to leave. Straus plays 15 different characters, including her
parents. The event benefits “Field Farm Studies”, a joint project of Marin Organic and MALT, two organizations that Ellen Straus (Vivien’s mother) helped create.
