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 San Anselmo Creek and learn why protecting stream headwaters is important to our wildlife and communities. This will be a moderate 2 mile hike. 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: Questions: Call (415) 473-2816.
