CANCELLED - All About Oaks

Oaks and their acorns are vitally important to a broad spectrum of animals (including humans). We’ll discuss the role of these trees in local ecosystems as we compare several oak species and a few interesting hybrids. This walk is only a couple of miles long but includes a slow climb to the ridge and a fairly steep downhill section. Distance: 1.5 miles. Elevation change: 250'.

Remember to bring a lunch and binoculars if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

Be sure to check the calendar or call (415) 473-6086 two hours before the event to confirm the status. Factors including illness, adverse weather, or Air Quality Index (AQI) that exceeds 150 on may cancel events.
