Roaming the Redwoods

Sunday, April 9, 2017
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
$5 per vehicle park entrance fee.
Redwood Regional Park
Oakland, Alameda County

Join Greenbelt Alliance for a springtime hike through a sylvan treasure, Redwood Regional Park in the Oakland hills.

Oakland is named for the coast live oak. But did you know that Oakland was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods? That ancient forest was logged during the gold rush, but we’ll walk in the shade of the impressive descendants of the original trees.
