The wildflowers are beautiful this year thanks to the recent rain! This docent led hike will be all about wildflowers at our Harvego Bear River Preserve in North Auburn on Saturday, April 8 at 9:30am. Our docents will guide you around the preserve to where the wildflowers are blooming. You’ll have opportunities to learn about the flowers as well as take pictures.
In addition to learning about wildflowers, you will also see the historic rock walls, hear about the history of the cattle ranch in this rolling oak woodland savannah setting, and learn about the plans to link this preserve to other PLT preserves and Hidden Falls Regional park.
We suggest a minimum donation of $10 per person which helps us continue our work and keeps you informed about other upcoming events. We accept cash or check at the event, or you can donate online at http://www.placerlandtrust.org/donate/ .
