Take a walk into early spring with the first “wildflower walk,” of the 2014 Nature Series at Jack London Park from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 8.
The first of a series of spring wildflower walks led by park naturalists Deborah Large and John Lynch will be an easy 3.5-mile ramble of moderate difficulty beginning on the Lake trail, meandering along Quarry trail and finally winding down to Vineyard trail to the ancient redwood. Discover the first of spring’s wildflowers and learn how they adapted to the lack of early rain this winter.
Wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars and cameras; water and a snack provided but bring additional food and water as well as walking stick if desired.
Meet in the ranch parking lot of Jack London State Historic Park, 2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen. Heavy rain cancels the walk; check website.
Admission is $10 a person which includes water and a snack and can be arranged in advance online at jacklondonpark.com/early-spring-wildflower-walk.html or purchased at the museum.
