North Bay: Enchanted Deer Island

Free - Reservations Required
Deer Island Preserve
Novato, Marin County

Join us for a pleasant spring hike in Deer Island Preserve.

No longer a true island, the preserve (a dairy farm in the 19th century) was once part of the extensive wetlands of the Petaluma River delta. We hope to see some late-blooming wildflowers and Deer Island’s famous buckeye tree in bloom.

Like most of you, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 news and information, and we’re following guidelines from the World Health Organization, CDC, and local government to stay healthy.

Based on that guidance, our small group outdoor hikes will continue this week. However, we ask that participants and leaders follow recommended public health guidelines and social distancing protocols to stay safe. View our protocols here.
