It’s summertime and the “living is easy”— the perfect time for an evening hike on Mount Diablo.

Our soiree begins at Coulter Pond, where we’ll look for toads and frogs. Then, as the sun sets, we’ll hike up Mitchell Canyon to check out the park’s evening shift, including poor-wills, bats, owls, and scorpions.

Like most of you, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 news and information, and we’re following guidelines from the World Health Organization, CDC, and local government to stay healthy.

Based on that guidance, our small group outdoor hikes will continue this week. However, we ask that participants and leaders follow recommended public health guidelines and social distancing protocols to stay safe. View our protocols here.
