Hike: Birds & Flowers of Sonoma Valley - June 7, 2015

When: Sunday, June 7, 2015 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Where: Sonoma Valley Regional Park

Sonoma Valley Regional Park Join Regional Parks on a hike across a new section of Sonoma Valley Regional Park. Led by Assistant Parks Manager Jim Piercy, this walk will follow the new Cougar trail through oak woodlands to Damselfly Pond and on to the Black Canyon Creek Trail, returning on the Valley of the Moon Trail. Clarkias, Ithuriel’s Spears, and Mariposa Lilies should all be blooming in early June, and the bird watching should be great. This 29-acre addition to the park was purchased by the Sonoma Land Trust last year and transferred to Regional Parks as an expansion of Sonoma Valley Park. The former ranchland is a crucial piece of the imperiled Sonoma Valley wildlife corridor and offers panoramic views of the Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Mountain, the Mayacamas Range, and San Pablo and San Francisco Bays. This is an easy/moderate walk of about 2 miles on dirt and paved paths. Free. Parking $7 or free for Regional Parks members. Meet in the parking lot for a prompt 9 a.m. departure. This hike is part of the Sonoma County Trails Challenge.
