Transitions: Exploring Life Cycles

Saturday, June 29 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Explore transitions in nature’s life cycles with docents Catherine Crawford-Swent and Marie Faust Evitt. Hiking through the forest you’ll encounter ferns, wildflowers, Douglas fir and redwood trees along Sierra Morena, Oljon, Steam Donkey, and Methuselah Trails. You’ll discover how new plants form, identify plant strategies for survival, and how mature plants evolve and change. You’ll explore the profound impact that the history of this Preserve had on area plant life. Perhaps you’ll also discover corollaries with transitions in your own lives.

Moderate 5.5 hike

Where to Meet:

Meet at the Preserve parking lot located on the west side of Highway 35 (Skyline Boulevard), about 1- mile south of the Caltrans Skeggs Point parking area and 2.7 miles north of the intersection of Highway 35 and Highway 84.
