Join us for a family walk where we will talk about our native plants and their traditional uses. We will cover some basic outdoor safety then explore the preserve. This is a great hike to learn the basics for surviving a night lost in the woods. Participants will also get a glimpse into how our ancestors survived prior to the luxuries of cell phones and modern medicine. This will be an easy 1 mile hike but will include climbing over fallen trees. 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.
