Attached is a spreadsheet with my results from the 3 big days by bike. Don’t have a cumulative total for all the days yet, but turns out the highest single day was on 4/20/12  with sturdy Steve Phillips. In fact we sacked 161 species…  I am working on my written reports but the lists should tell the story a bit.
My Routes:
4/20/12 (a) – Pt. Reyes station, Limantor, E Tomales Bay, Lucas Valley Road, Las Gallinas  (then home to SF via bike),  Total:161

4/25/12 (b) – Las Gallinas, Lucas Valley, Pt Reyes station, Limantor, Lenny’s Oyster’s (via unproductive trails), Lucas Valley, Las Gallinas, Total:141

5/1/12 (c) – Lucas Valley, Pt. Reyes station, Limantor, Bolinas, Carson Ridge, Corte Madera Marsh, Pickleweed Park, Lucas Valley, Total:156
