Event description

Description

Had your fill of Easter eggs? Then come join us for a spring wildflower hunt on Mount Diablo!

Mitchell Canyon is a Bay Area floral hotspot, and we are sure to find some rare and not-so-rare spring bloomers as we hike. We'll share stories of early botanical pioneers, explain how the flowers came to be named, and describe Native American uses of local flowering plants. Don't be surprised if we spot some native (Easter) bunnies along the trail!

LEADER
Ken Lavin

TOTAL DISTANCE
This is a moderate hike of 4 miles with just a few hundred feet in elevation change.

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

COST
$6 per vehicle park entrance fee (exact cash required).

WHERE TO MEET
We'll assemble near the Mitchell Canyon Visitor Center.

NOTES
Bring water and snacks. Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have any questions about this outing, email klavin@greenbelt.org or phone at 415-543-6771 x321.



Like most of you, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 news and information, and we’re following guidelines from the World Health Organization, CDC, and local government to stay healthy.

Based on that guidance, our small group outdoor hikes will continue this week. However, we ask that participants and leaders follow recommended public health guidelines and social distancing protocols to stay safe. View our protocols here.
