East Bay: Spring Saunter in Shell Ridge
Spring has finally sprung! Time to head outdoors and greet our early season wildflowers.
Our hike takes us over high ridges, across rolling valleys, and along steep canyons in Shell Ridge Open Space. Along the way, we’ll enjoy great vistas, springtime flora, fossils from a prehistoric sea, and a vernal pond or two.
Shell Ridge was saved from sprawl development in the 1970s through the work of local citizens groups. Greenbelt Alliance partners with local groups today to help preserve our open space and make the Bay Area climate-resilient.
