The Mt. Tamalpais Florilegium

The Mt. Tamalpais Florilegium is an exhibition of paintings and drawings of the flora of Mt. Tamalpais created by members of the Northern California Society of Botanical Artists (NCalSBA). The collection will be expanded over the next few years and will eventually document a large sampling of the native flora growing on Mt. Tamalpais, including many of its rare and special status species. Our hope is that by showcasing the unique beauty of its flora, others will be inspired to learn more about our mountain and join us in our efforts to protect it.
