10 Gary giacomini 2

Sunday, April 23      9:00-2:00 p.m.

Led by:  Marin County Parks naturalist Shannon Burke

Meet at the gate to Willis Evans Trail on Redwood Canyon Drive in San Geronimo.

Come celebrate Native Plant Week with Marin County Parks and the California Native Plant Society. The ridge above the south side of the San Geronimo Valley is one of the great gems in the county. Wildflowers (including several serpentine endemics), a pygmy Sargent cypress forest, and incredible views are our reward for the sustained climb that will bring us to the top.

We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

This hike is for ages 15 and up. It is a moderately strenuous walk with a sustained climb to the ridge and back, about 4 to 5 miles overall.

Wear: Hiking clothes and shoes, hat, sunscreen

Bring: Lunch, water, binoculars if you have them

Free and No registration required

Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call 415-893-9527 after 8 a.m. on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.
