Literature, Lore, and Life Sciences

Saturday, July 13 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am

Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Unpack the diverse symbolic and scientific meanings behind this and other literary quotes from across centuries and continents on a moderate hike along many of this Preserve’s popular trails. Docents Anna Lee and Naureen Moon will guide you on an exploration of the ways nature has inspired literature and lore throughout history, and the ways that humans make sense and meaning of nature. (Note: Arrive early 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.
