Connecting with Nature

Monte Bello Preserve
Approximate Total Miles

Enjoy the many benefits of being outdoors with Docent Naturalists Catherine Crawford-Swent and Ann McCarty. You’ll explore interconnections within the natural world while deepening your own relationship with the environment using simple mindfulness and qi gong practices. The first mindfulness activity will be overlooking a valley where the North American and Pacific tectonic plates meet. Join us and witness how nature may transform you.

Meet at the Monte Bello Parking Area on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
