What a fantastic surprise to find photos of these young pumas. Probably worth the risk of climbing through poison oak. And I hope the Extreme Tecnu poison oak scrub works. I will know tomorrow since it usually takes 48 hours for my body to react to this allergen.

Next I went to Monte Bello Open Space Preserve where my fellow botanists were checking the progress of a volunteer project. I was late arriving but they had a birthday lunch for me and I was really hungry having skipped my breakfast to call people about the puma family. We talked about how to keep improving the annual Earth Day wildflower census. I am proud to be on the great team of nerdy botanists at the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District.
