Event description

Description

Come see the beautiful sunrise over the Sierra Nevada while hiking on the UC Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve. The reserve is located at the intersection of Rancher's Road and Ansel Adam's Road on the UC Merced campus (5200 North Lake Road, Merced, CA, 95348). Many animals are especially active in the early morning, so the potential for exciting observation is high. Bring a daypack with a water bottle, camera, binoculars, and a hat. Meet at 6:00am sharp at the entrance gate on Rancher's Road, 50 yards north of the Student Services Building. The walk will last approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. We will hike out to the highest hilltop on the reserve to have a great perspective as the morning sun fills the valley. Limited to 20, but a reservation is required. Open to all. A waiver will be required for all non-UC attendees and will be provided at the beginning of the hike.
