Nature for Kids: Blackstone Canyon

This secluded valley below the rugged east end of Big Rock Ridge is a great place to look for animals that are attracted to the creek. We’ll take a slow walk to the wet places in the canyon to see who’s hiding there. It can be quite chilly in the canyon even on a warm day, so bring extra layers. Remember to bring lunch.

High fire or heavy smoke danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the day of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. We request no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at or (415) 893-9520.

Directions: From Highway 101 in San Rafael take the Marinwood St Vincent’s Dr exit, west on Miller Creek Rd 0.3 miles. Turn right onto Las Gallinas Ave 0.4 miles, then left onto Blackstone Dr 0.2 miles. Stay left and follow Valleystone Dr, park at end.
