Exploring the Baylands

Saturday, July 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join docents Debbie Mytels and Naureen Moon for a late afternoon hike along trails at the edge of the Bay. You’ll discover how tides help specially adapted plants survive in a salty environment, and you may see some little-known creatures that make wetlands among the most productive ecosystems on Earth. You’ll also learn some colorful history of this Preserve and adjacent Cooley Landing Park. Bring or wear layered clothing as it may be windy and cool here, even when it’s warm and calm further inland!

An easy 3 mile hike suitable for children and children in strollers

Where to Meet:

Meet at the Preserve parking lot.  From Highway 101, exit on University Avenue. Follow University Ave. north (about four long blocks) to Bay Road.  Turn right on Bay Rd. and follow it to the very end (about 1.2 miles).  The Preserve entrance and parking lot are marked with large signs.
