Description

Environmental History of the Modini Mayacamas Preserve, Sunday August 20, 9am-12pm

Come join Dave Self, ACR Resource Ecologist, and AEP/APA for a hike on Audubon Canyon Ranch’s remote, 3,000-acre Modini Mayacamas Preserves, located 8 miles north east of Healdsburg, high above the Alexander and Knights Valleys. Starting from the junction of Pine Flat and Red Winery Roads, we’ll drive 9 miles up Pine Flat Road to Little Sulphur Creek. From there, we’ll take a short one mile hike west and 300 feet up to the ridgeline, to appreciate serpentine sunflowers, turpentine weed and other late summer wildflowers. We’ll also enjoy views of Alexander Valley and the outer Coast Ranges. During the walk, Dave will talk about the environmental history of this area (which included an 1870’s mining town), the role of fire in the ecology of the region, and about ACR’s fire program and ACR’s mountain lion project.

Directions from Santa Rosa: Go North on 101 past Healdsburg to Lytton Springs exit; go right ( east) 0.2 miles to end; turn right (south) onto Healdsburg Ave and go 0.7 mile to sharp left (east) onto Alexander Valley Rd; this will take you ~4 miles via 128 straight onto Pine Flat Rd and up to the first junction (Pine Flat Rd and Red Winery Rd) and park on the right, next to the vineyard.

Free for AEP/APA members. $20 non-members.
