Literature, Lore, and Life Sciences

Saturday, October 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Unpack the diverse symbolic and scientific meanings behind this and other familiar quotes from literature across the centuries and continents on this moderate hike along many of this Preserve’s popular trails. Docents Anna Lee and Chris MacIntosh will guide you on an exploration of the ways nature has inspired literature and lore throughout history, and the ways that humans have made sense and meaning of nature. (Note: Arrive early and allow extra time to find parking.)

Where to Meet:

Meet near the restroom at the bottom of the hill in the Preserve parking lot farthest to the right. From I-280, take Foothill Boulevard south and turn right almost immediately onto Cristo Rey Drive.  Continue about 1 mile, veer right around the traffic circle, and turn left into the park.  After entering the Preserve, turn right and drive approximately 0.3 miles to the parking lot.
