Roaming the Redwoods
Start the year off right with a hike in Oakland’s majestic redwood forest. We’ll search for ladybug slumber parties (clusters of ladybird beetles on logs and ferns) and give a New Year’s greeting to banana slugs we encounter along the trail.
Redwood Creek is home to a population of rainbow trout and newts, so we’ll also look for them when we walk along the stream.

We’ll assemble at the Canyon Meadow Staging Area. There are restrooms near the beginning of the hike, and also along the way.
Bring water, lunch, dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or phone him at 415-543-6771 x321.
