Botany Series: Plant Families in the Field (Muir Woods Redwood Creek Loop)

October 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am

- Donations encouraged

Stretch your legs and get out your hand lens! Spend the morning in old growth redwoods and on the banks of Redwood Creek for a botany-oriented hike examining several plant families and genera. Our last hike we documented sixty six families!Although we will be in the woods you can expect a range of weather it could be foggy to misty wet or dry and warm- dress appropriately. Bring water snacks and or lunch. Hike is 3.5 miles and moderately strenuous. Trails on the canyon walls are dirt narrow steep and rutted with tree roots; while the main path in the park is an elevated boardwalk. We will be visiting riparian herbaceous woodland and the old growth forest naturally and we might even catch a glimpse of the rare albino redwood. Its the time of year to enjoy examining seeds fruits and ferns! Meet at Muir Woods Park entrance.
