Docent-Led Activities

Sunset hikers at Monte Bello Preserve (Karl Gohl)

All Midpen guided activities are developed and provided by docent naturalists who have completed an extensive training program. Our docents volunteer their time to share knowledge and enthusiasm with you about the natural and cultural history of Midpen preserves. All guided activities are FREE and only some require reservations – please click on a specific activity title to determine if reservations are needed. The system will accept reservations two weeks in advance of an activity date and allows a maximum of 4 people per reservation.


NOTE: Midpen COVID-19 public health protocols for guided outdoor activities (masks when distancing not possible) will no longer be in effect after March 31. Guided activity participants are welcome to continue to wear masks and maintain distance as suits personal risk parameters. Changeable restrictions for health safety will be monitored and implemented as needed.
