Join LandPaths, Kashia Pomo Tribe of the Stewarts Point Rancheria and the Ag + Open Space through a unique hike through the Kashia Coastal Reserve. We will learn about the history, ecology and current restorations efforts happening at this beautiful 688-acre coastal reserve. This magnificent property, not open to the public, is home to pristine creeks, ancient redwood forests, and scenic coastal bluffs. We will be hiking about 4-mile round trip on uneven terrain with some elevation gain. This hike is suitable for adults, but open to families with children 13 years or older, if the children are comfortable outdoors and self-motivated and focused around learning in nature. Participants should bring their own lunch.
Where: We will meet at the parking lot of the Roseland Village (in front of the Dollar Tree on 777 Sebastopol Rd. Santa Rosa CA 95407). Click here for Google Map.
You will receive more information on the location of the preserve after registering for this event.
Carpool option: Carpooling is required due to the lengthy driving distance to the parking area. (More information coming soon.)
When: We will meet at 8am on Saturday, October 20th. Thanks for being prompt so we can start on time. We will be back to the cars by about 4pm.
What to bring: Good boots or walking shoes, picnic lunch and/or snacks, water, weather appropriate clothing (think layers as the weather can change quickly on the coast). Suggested: something to sit on at lunch, binoculars, camera, walking stick for negotiating the terrain.
