Baker's Meadowfoam A Rare and Endangered Plant Species
Today I photographed some Baker's Meadowfoam (Limnanthes bakeri). A rare and endangered plant endemic to Mendocino County, California. Currently this plant is a hot potato for the ranchers in the Little Lake Valley and Cal Trans which is planning on building a highway through the valley and has to mitigate the wetlands it will destroy in the process with other pastureland in the valley. It will be interesting to see how this all falls out in the end.
God's blessings to all,
