Ferns & Other Ancient Plants

Saturday, October 12 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Take a walk down into Stevens Creek Canyon, with docents Debbie Mytels and Ping Li who will help you identify various ferns and other plants that evolved before flowers graced the Earth. You’ll learn about ferns commonly consumed by humans in different cultures around the world and you’ll look for newts while crossing over the creek. Returning by the White Oak Trail, you’ll stop to enjoy the snack you have packed, and maybe observe some deer browsing in the meadow.

Where to Meet:

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
