Join docents John Seyfarth and Helena Cohen for a fun and educational hike along the San Andreas Fault.

(Note: Families with engaged children who are attentive listeners and capable of hiking several miles are welcome on this leisurely-paced outing with minimal elevation change.) Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after October 24.

Note: Regardless of vaccination status, all activity participants will be required to wear a mask when physical distancing cannot be maintained. Please review the additional COVID-19 safety protocols provided when you register for an activity.
