Join us for the new Junior Ranger program, created to teach youth about outdoor skills, natural history and environmental stewardship. The program is intended for 7-12 year olds, though explorers of all ages are welcome to attend. We will cover some basic pre-hike preparation and outdoor safety, then walk along the Camino Alto ridgeline and see one of our major habitat restoration projects. Participants will learn how invasive plants have changed our ridgelines and why protection and management are so important. This will be a 2 mile moderate to strenuous walk. Dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes (it could be muddy or slippery), and bring water and snacks. Friendly dogs are welcome, but must be leashed. Rain will cancel the event.
Questions: Call (415) 473-2816.
