East Bay: Roving Oakland’s Redwoods

Sunday, May 19, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
There is a $5/vehicle park entrance fee.
Redwood Regional Park
Oakland, Alameda County

Put some “spring” in your step with a shady hike through Oakland’s redwood forest.

Oakland is named for the coast live oak, but it was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods. We’ll walk beneath the “youthful” decedents of those ancient giants and share some forest folklore and fascinating facts about California’s state tree. We might even kiss a banana slug.
