A Walk Into Fall

Examine the changing season with park naturalist John Lynch on this autumn ramble. John will help you identify the variety of oaks that live along this trail, while you look for "oak apples", and "flying saucer" galls. Learn about "Acorn Time" and the importance of oaks as a keystone species in the Valley of The Moon. Listen for the "waka waka"  of  acorn woodpeckers and watch for their black and white plumage and bright red crowns as they busily harvest the years abundant acorns. With Halloween around the corner, you might just discover some "witches broom", as you look closely at different kinds of spider webs, and learn about our local bats.

This walk is appropriate for all ages. We suggest that you bring binoculars, a camera, water, and wear appropriate shoes for park trails. Your curiosity, wonder and questions are all encouraged. 

When: Saturday, October 20, 2018 9:30am to noon
Where: 2400 London Ranch Road, Glen Ellen. Meet at the The House of Happy Walls museum
Admission: FREE for the hike parking fee applies.
