Survivor – Big Basin
May 7, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Imagine yourself way, way back in the time of the dinosaurs. It’s easy on this walk where we’ll see some of the very same plants that lived on earth during the time of the dinosaurs. We’ll discuss what survived from the distant past and why. This one-hour program is designed for school age kids and their adults, but anyone who can make the fairly flat one-mile walk is welcome! Docents Micki Downs and Maura McNamara will share child-friendly redwood information and activities along this beautiful trail. Then, some free play time in an awesome redwood fairy ring will give the adults a chance to explore deeper forest issues such as history, logging, climate change, redwoods and glaciers. We end the program with a short but fun tribute to the dinosaurs (who didn’t win in the survivor game).
Meet at Big Basin Park Headquarters, located 9 miles north of Boulder Creek on Highway 236.
Event is free; vehicle day-use fee is $10.
Event made possible by Mountain Parks Foundation, California State Parks volunteers, and California State Parks.
