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.
