North Bay: Enchanted Deer Island
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.
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.
