Canine Caper

Saturday, December 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

| Free – $100
Greenbelt Alliance is going to the dogs (and the volcanos) on this canine-friendly nature walk in Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve.

About this event

Ten million years ago, a geologic convergence called the “triple plate junction” produced the volcanic features seen in the park today. But what strange convergence of forces produced the park’s stone labyrinths? Canine detectives are on the case!

Everyone is welcome (dogs optional).

TOTAL DISTANCE

This is a moderate three-mile loop with a few hundred feet in elevation change.

LEADERS

Ken Lavin and Daniela Ades.

WEATHER POLICY

Rain cancels.

COST

Free, RSVP required.

WHERE TO MEET

We’ll assemble at the main park entrance off Skyline Boulevard in Oakland. There are restrooms at our meeting spot.

NOTES

Bring snacks, water, hiking poles (if you normally use them), and leash (if bringing a dog); wear layers and good hiking shoes. East Bay Regional Park District rules allow dogs off-leash in much of the park, provided they are in sight and under voice command. However, dogs must be leashed within 200 feet of developed areas. If you have any questions about this outing, contact Ken Lavin at klavin@greenbelt.org or 415-543-6771 x321.
