East Bay: Summer Saunter in the Redwoods

Sunday, July 7, 2019
9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
There is a $5 per vehicle park entrance fee.
Redwood Regional Park
Oakland, Alameda County

Beat the summer heat with a walk in the shade of Oakland’s redwood forest.

Oakland is named for the coast live oak, but it was once home to some of the world’s largest redwoods. We’ll walk beneath the “youthful” decedents of those ancient giants and share some forest folklore and fascinating facts about California’s state tree.
