The following inventory of the physical and ecological features of San Marino Shores has been made to assess the values for a future Conservation Easement status. This work was undertaken at the request of David and Donna Miller, residents of San Marino Shores, and with the permission of several adjacent land owners. The purpose of this inventory is for use in documentation of some future easement, and as an aid in future monitoring. The field work for this assessment was done on 8 July 1991. On this occasion, plant species were identified by sight, and a few difficult specimens were taken home for further scrutiny. It is important to realize that the date of the field work was after the blooming of the spring flora, and substantially before the blooming of the fall flora. Therefore, it was only by the vegetative portions of those plants that I identified them. It is also quite possible that I missed a few of the more seasonally restricted species.
