The redwood forest comes to life in the wet season; ferns, mosses, and mushrooms are all around, banana slugs and newts are on the move, and there are lots of insects and other interesting animals hiding under logs and rocks. We request that no animals (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.
