Native Flora & Fauna Hike – Briones Regional Park

December 15, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Enjoy a beautiful walk below a canopy of madrone, bay, and oak giants. We will undoubtedly see newts and mushrooms as we parallel Bear Creek on a single-track trail and circle back on a section of the Seaborg Trail. Be sure to dress in layers and wear sturdy boots or shoes; bring hiking sticks, plenty of water, sunscreen, and a snack. There is one shallow creek crossing.
