Location: Registrants will be informed of location
Docent: Duffy Burns & Gil Eastman

On this two-hour stroll along the bluff, we try to find wabi-sabi. What is it? What does it look like? Where do we even start looking for this traditional Japanese aesthetic? Will we find it in the cute little weasel that lives near the bluff trail? Or the purple stipa or blue-eyed grass? Is it in the very, very patient blue heron or great egret waiting for a vole to pop out of a hole? Is it an ancient Playaño kitchen being slowly covered by a multicolor lichen blanket? Is a young harbor seal telling mom it’s hungry? Whatever wabi-sabi is, whatever we find, this is a chance to discover more about life on the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve

Binoculars recommended. The walk is approximately 2 miles along the coastal bluff with very little elevation gain. There are no toilet facilities on the Ranch-come prepared. The walk is open to all by reservation only. Children are very welcome, with adult supervision.  No dogs please.  Rain cancels the walk.
