English: Wildflower Walk
Saturday 4/3 or 4/17, 10am-noon
Come enjoy a walk amongst the wildflowers. A guide will take us on a walk of about 3 miles where we’ll learn about the spring wildflowers in the park, including ones that only spring up after wildfires. In preparation for this year’s City Nature Challenge, we will utilize iNaturalist to document what we find during our walk.
We will meet behind the Visitor Center ten minutes prior to the event start time. This is a free event planned around a primarily Spanish speaking audience of up to 12. Families from underrepresented groups are particularly welcome. Registration is required. Please wear appropriate clothing and bring a reusable container so your little ones can enjoy hot cocoa after the walk. Email alma@sonomaecologycenter.org with your questions. Heavy rains cancel. We will observe personal distancing and mask-wearing in compliance with County Health orders.
Senderos Naturales is supported by Route to Parks, a grant of Parks California.
