Put some bounce in your step with a leap year day hike through a redwood forest.
Oakland is named for the coast live oak, but it was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods. We’ll walk beneath the “youthful” decedents of those ancient giants and share some forest folklore and fascinating facts about California’s state tree. We might even kiss a banana slug. Don’t miss this outing; it only comes around every 4 years! Registration required.
