EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO STORM EVENT
Sunday, February 19, 2017
1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Rancho Cañada del Oro Open Space Preserve

Even though it is still winter, the early wildflowers and blossoms are already blooming! Join Docent Paul for an afternoon stroll to seek these early bloomers, many of which may be gone by the official start of Spring. Light rain does not cancel the hike but heavy rain or storm conditions will. Be prepared for possible muddy conditions and a stream crossing. If the weather reports call for sunshine, we encourage you to come early and have a picnic at the tables around the meadow before the hike! Learn more.
