Hike Bouvierie with a biologist
The "Twilight Trails" Backyard Naturalist Program offers a rare opportunity to explore Bouverie Preserve at dusk with Bouverie Preserve biologist Jeanne Wirka. The next event takes place Friday, Oct. 14, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
The first part of the one- to two-mile guided hike will be spent in silence, to disconnect from the buzz of daily life, and provide opportunities to hear the great horned and screech owls. Eyes will be on the lookout for flying moths, bats and fluorescent scorpions. In the second part of the hike, Wirka will discuss the nocturnal cycles and habits of animals at the Bouverie. Hikers should bring water, appropriate layers, hiking shoes or boots and a snack.
The 535-acre Bouverie Preserve is home to a rich and distinct combination of plants and animals, including more than 130 species of birds, 350 species of flowering plants and numerous large mammals such as the bobcat, grey fox and coyote.
Bouverie Preserve is located at 13935 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen.
The cost is $25 for non-members, with discounts available for members.
