Join Bear Yuba Land Trust at Hirschman Trail on Saturday, Dec 9 as we continue this fun series just for families called Junior Conservationist: Stories in Nature with Certified California Naturalist Steve Roddy and Trek Docent Linda Conklin.
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.
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 – 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.
Bring binoculars (optional), water, a snack, weather appropriate clothing and wear sturdy shoes. No dogs please.
