Hike with a Naturalist

Sat, September 22, 2018, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

We’ll be discussing the roll of Oaks as a keystone species in Trione-Annadel SP both today and historically, see how many varieties of oaks we can find, looking for leaf and stem galls to marvel at along the way. As we walk through the Redwoods, we’ll be talking about the effect of these trees on micro climates and the adaptations plants and animals have to make to a variety of conditions within the park. We’ll also talk about effect of larger scale climate change on palnt communities in Trione-Annadel SP. Join Volunteer Interpretitive Naturalist John Lynch up Canyon Trail to Lake Ilsanjo and back down Spring Creek Trail (approximately 5 miles round trip). Hike returns to same parking area about 1 PM.

Wear hiking shoes, layers appropriate for weather; bring water and a snack. Some trails are rocky and uneven. There are no restrooms or water at the parking area or inside the park. Fee-free hike. No advance reservations needed. Dogs not allowed.

Directions: from Hwy 12/Hwy 101 interchange, follow Hwy 12 East to Sonoma, continue East (straight) at Farmer’s Lane — the street you are no on is Hoen Avenue. Continue for about 2 miles.
