Event description

Description

Join us for an evening hike up Mitchell Canyon in search of the crepuscular critters that call Mount Diablo home.

We’ll get close up and personal with Liz Watson's eight-legged friend, Scarlett O'Harry, before we head out to look for owls, bats, reptiles, spiders, and other denizens of the dark that hide during the day but shine (figuratively and sometimes literally) as the sun goes down.

DISTANCE
This is an easy to moderate hike of about two-and-a-half miles with a few hundred feet in elevation change.

LEADER
Liz Watson

WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.

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

WHERE TO MEET
We'll assemble at the picnic tables below the parking lot near Mitchell Creek.

NOTES
Bring water, snacks, dress in layers, wear good walking shoes and bring a flashlight. If you have questions about this outing email Ken Lavin or phone (415) 543-6771 x 321.
