Docents Keith Johnsgård and Jenny Whitman will lead this leisurely 2.5-mile hike on the Pond, Ipiwa, and Butano View Trails to acquaint you with the Ohlone Indian way of life by pointing out plants used for tools, food, medicine, basket-making, and other needs. Your lunch stop features an anthropological talk on how American Indians are clearly not Native Americans. (Note: This activity is geared specifically for adults and is not suitable for children.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after May 2.
