Join a naturalist guide as you take a slow and easy stroll along Fiscalini Ranch Preserve forest trails while searching for beautiful wildflowers, lichens, mosses, and an occasional curious Black Tail Deer.  Learn which seasonal flowers and draping lichens help build our immune system while satisfying our hunger and thirst (but NO foraging on the Preserve!). What should we look for...and what should we avoid?  The minty smell from crushed Yerba Buena - is it a sign telling us that tea from the plant just might taste delicious?  Or a temptation we need to avoid.  And what is that crossing our trail?  An "out-all-night" Woodrat trying to make it's way home?  Or simply a Grey Squirrel searching for it's buried acorns while living it's life "on the skinny branches". Either way, the joy of forest discovery helps guide us on our journey. Join our group for a wildlife adventure in the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve Forest...we'll see you out there!

This walk is approximately 2 1/2 miles with little elevation gain and is free and open to the public. Chilrden are welcome with adult supervision. No dogs please. Please be aware that there are no restroom facilities on the Ranch and plan accordingly! Rain cancels.
