When you visit the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area (YBWA) in Davis, CA have you ever wondered what those flowers are that are blooming along the road, in the rice fields, out in the canals? Are they native plants or introduced? There are many different plant habitats in the YBWA and they support a very wide range of flowering plants, and in this presentation we'll identify many of the common plants that you are likely to come across while you are visiting the public areas of the YBWA on foot or by car. In this virtual presentation Charlie Russell will help you identify the good, the bad, the ugly, and even the poisonous ones.
