Coyote Ridgetop Wildflower Hike

Saturday, April 7, 2018
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Free - RSVP Required
Coyote Ridge Open Space
San Jose, Santa Clara County

Join Greenbelt Alliance and the Santa Clara Open Space Authority on a family friendly hike along the top of Coyote Ridge. Open only to docent-led tours, Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve offers one of the most beautiful wildflower displays in the entire Bay Area.

This serpentine soil habitat is home to over 10 different endangered species of plants and animals. We’ll take in sweeping views of Coyote Valley while we enjoy the sunshine and breeze. If we are lucky, we may even spot the elusive and shy Tule Elk herd. Join us and discover why Greenbelt Alliance is working so hard to protect Coyote Valley from sprawl development.
