Location Sunny southwest facing hillside in Knowland Park, just west of "heartbreak hill". Normally covered by native grasses, forbs and wildflowers in spring.
Notes Plants with seed pods in an area that was heavily grazed by goats (down to bare mineral soil) in early June. Some of the goat manure is still visible. We've had one good rainstorm since then (Sept.21st), aside from the past three days' rain. Plants will be removed by volunteers this coming weekend.
