It’s back to school on this leisurely walk through the campus of California’s first 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 and specimen trees. 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.
