Over 5 million years ago, El Sobrante was below the ocean, and this is where the rocks that make the hills we see today were formed. Andrew Fowler and Gudrun Kleist will lead us on an exciting geology and native plant hike through the Sobrante Ridge Regional Preserve. On this moderate level hike, we will learn more about El Sobrante’s geology and investigate fossil sea shells that might be found in the rocks. We will also observe the plants that grow in the unique soil made from these rocks, including the rare Alameda Manzanita. We will stop at the top of the ridge to enjoy the view and eat snacks. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle, and SPAWNERS will provide snacks. Apologies to your canine friends, but please leave dogs at home. Please RSVP to 510-665-3538 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is open to the public.
