Junior Conservationist: Stories in Nature at Rattlesnake Trail

Join BYLT and certified California Naturalists Steve Roddy and Linda Conklin on October 13, 2018 from 10:00 to 11:30 am to explore local trails and discover the plants, animals, and history of each special region. 

This month, the Junior Conservationist will meet to hike the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail section. This is an ideal family walk; the trail winds into the woods, with some varied terrain. The hike will be about 1.7 miles, mostly as a loop. Please note: there is poison oak off the trail, so take necessary precautions to avoid an irritating rash!

Come explore nature and become a Junior Conservationist! A conservationist is someone who advocates or acts for the protection and preservation of the environment and wildlife. This outing is designed for young hikers, age 4 to 12, accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Please wear sturdy shoes suitable for hiking, and comfortable clothing. Please bring plenty of water and snacks and leave dogs at home.
