Come traverse hayfields and old remnant orchards near the former home of progressive San Francisco newspaper journalist, Fremont Older, for whom this Preserve is named. Docents Marilyn and Bill Bauriedel, and Farhana Kazi will explore Older’s adventurous life fighting corruption in the City as a crusading editor after the 1906 earthquake. You’ll also learn about the home known as “Woodhills”, built in 1914 by Fremont and his wife Cora. A snack stop at the top of Hunters Point will provide panoramic views of the Santa Clara Valley. Capable, attentive children 10 years and older are welcome.
