Junior Conservationist: Stories in Nature at Hirschman Pond

Bear Yuba Land Trust is pleased to announce a new series of Family Treks with Certified California Naturalist Steve Roddy – Junior Conservationist: Stories in Nature. A conservationist is someone who advocates or acts for the protection and preservation of the environment and wildlife.

These outings are designed for children ages 5 to 12, accompanied with a parent or other caregiver. We’ll explore three local trails and discover the plants, animals and history of each special region. Participants will receive stamps for each Junior Conservationist excursion they go on with certificates given to those who complete all three treks in the series!

60 years observing in the wilds of California and Hawaii have lead Steve Roddy to appreciate the interconnectedness of nature. Along with a love of a good story, Steve enjoys sharing our local trails. As one young friend stated, “I never knew how much I didn’t know until I hiked with Mr. Steve!”- Jose age 9.

This hike heads into an old hydraulic mine diggins. California Naturalist Steve Roddy will lead this outing with wildlife observations at the pond. The two-mile trail will meander through oak woodlands, pines and grasslands. A discussion about the impact of hydraulic mining will be followed by stories of the miners.

Cost: FREE – Donations are always welcome.

Registration required.
Registration closes at 9:00am ONE business day before the event, unless otherwise specified.
