Exploring UC Berkeley
It’s back to school on this leisurely walk through the campus of California’s oldest university.
Greenbelt Alliance board member Bob Johnson will show us a mix of historic and modern architecture, some fascinating building interiors, and natural areas of the campus including Strawberry Creek. We’ll also have the opportunity to ascend Sather Tower (the Campanile) for some great views.
This is one of the many walks featured in Bob Johnson and Janet Byron’s book, Berkeley Walks.

Heavy rain cancels.
We’ll assemble at the southeast corner of Center and Shattuck in downtown Berkeley. (Note that the traditional main exit of BART at the southwest corner will be closed for reconstruction but other entrances should be open.)
Bring water, lunch, wear good walking shoes, and dress in layers. There is a $3 charge to ride the elevator to the top of the Campanile. If you have questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone (415) 543-6771 x321.
