Explore Kennedy Grove
Beat the summer heat with a shady hike in the East Bay Hills.
We’ll amble along the Sea Foam and Black Oak loop trails to see a variety of native shrubs and trees including (surprise, surprise) the Black Oak. What is the particular affinity this tree has to California? Why did Native Americans prize it? What is its strange connection to the Academy of Sciences? Learn this and more as we walk in hills that were preserved in one of Greenbelt Alliance’s earliest open space conservation campaigns.
