Briones Park in Winter

January 27 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Put down your copy of Spores Illustrated and join Greenbelt Alliance on a winter wander in Briones Regional Park.


Mushroom enthusiast Debbie Klein will help us identify the fungi we encounter along the trail. (We’ll just be looking, no collecting allowed in the East Bay Regional Parks.) We’ll also visit at a couple of lagoons (aka “newtist colonies”) and see how the park’s amorous amphibians get a jump on Valentine’s Day.


TOTAL DISTANCE
This is a moderate hike of four to five miles with a few steep sections.


LEADERS
Debbie Klein and Ken Lavin


WEATHER POLICY
Rain cancels.


COST
Free, RSVP required.


WHERE TO MEET
We’ll assemble at the gate at the top of Old Briones Road. There is a drinking fountain and outhouse at the trailhead. 


NOTES
Bring water, lunch, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring hiking poles if you normally use them. Portions of the trail may be quite muddy. If you have questions about this outing email Ken Lavin or phone (415) 543-6771 x 321.
