January 21, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Sunday Jan 21, 2018

9:30am -Noon

Meeting place:

Turtleback trailhead, San Pedro Rd


Join naturalist Susan Edwards to wander through China Camp State Park and wonder at the plants and creatures that make it home. We’ll start at the Turtleback trail and make our way through the grasslands to the pickleweed marsh. This will be a slow, joyful walk to see, smell, taste, hear and feel as much as we can. Susan is a seasoned naturalist who loves to share her knowledge of the intricate secrets of natural world along the trails of China Camp. She equally delights in discovering and learning new things with you, the participants!


“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
