CASPBA: In Pursuit of Perseids

California State Parks Backpacking (CASPBA)
Who better to lead you through our parks than California State Park professionals? Travel from spectacular ridgelines, through old growth redwood forests, to sandy shores with our knowledgeable team of backcountry naturalists. Imagine if the Santa Cruz Mountains could speak, and the stories they could tell. We will share the secrets of this precious wilderness and give you a window into the lives of the people who lived here for thousands of years.
Registration opens Wednesday February 1, 2017 at 8 am
On this 1 night, 2 day trip journey up to Butano Ridge and watch shooting stars in the quiet and darkness of the backcountry.
