Flowers, birds, and butterflies will surround us as we enjoy a spring day in this Fairfax preserve. This canyon is the upper reach of the San Anselmo Creek watershed, a pristine wildlife refuge, and truly one of the jewels in all of Marin County. We should see an assortment of lilies and other shade loving flowers in the forest. With luck we may get a head start on some early returning migrants as well, such as orange-crowned warblers, Pacific slope flycatchers and warbling vireos. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the morning of the walk for a recorded message to see if the walk is cancelled. David Herlocker will lead.
