Approximate Total Miles

Why are flowers and plants important? Did you know plants "trick" animals into helping them grow? Join Docent Naturalists Roberta and Jaime Cavazos, Annie Guo, and Bill Bauriedel on a family-friendly and leisurely-paced hike into different habitats to discover amazing facts about plants and flowers. You'll do a fun activity to see how bees help with pollinating flowers and other plants. Bring a snack to enjoy along the trail.

Where to Meet

Meet at the Russian Ridge Parking Area on the northwest corner of the Skyline Boulevard (Highway 35) and Page Mill/Alpine Road intersection (across Skyline Blvd. on the right). Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 40 minutes travel time.

To ensure your experience on a docent naturalist outing is enjoyable please review these activity guidelines.

If your activity requires registration, please be sure to cancel your reservation (from your confirmation email) if you are no longer able to attend so others can participate.
