This Novato valley is a wonderful place to spend a spring day. We’ll start the day with a slow climb, stopping all along the way to enjoy flowers in bloom and early-season birds in song. After lunch we’ll continue the loop, making our way down to a permanent pond to see what species we might find taking advantage of this small oasis. 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. Shannon Burke will lead. Questions: contact Shannon at (415) 893-9520 or SBurke@marincounty.org. Meet at the College of Marin Indian Valley Campus in Novato, parking lot 6 (1800 Ignacio Blvd). DIRECTIONS: from Hwy 101 in Novato, take the Ignacio Blvd/Bel Marin Keys Blvd exit west on Ignacio Blvd approximately 2.5 miles all the way through campus. Parking lot 6 is adjacent to the police.
