Senior Stroll: Exploring an Island

This small preserve, which is surrounded by the tidally influenced South Fork of Las Gallinas Creek, is an ideal spot for a relaxed summer walk. The oak-covered hill which rises in the center of the island is encircled by a short (.3 mile) loop trail that follows the edge of the salt marsh.  We'll take advantage of this level, dirt pathway to discuss the plants and animals that can be found in each of these habitats. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

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

No registration is required.

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

Directions: From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for N San Pedro Rd east 1.1 miles. Turn left onto Meadow Dr (opposite the 7-Eleven store) and drive to the end (dead end).
