Get in Touch With Nature at Fairfield Osborn Preserve

Fairfield Osborn PreserveGuided hikes at SSU's beautiful, 411-acre Fairfield Osborn Preserve take place every Saturday, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., from Oct. 24 until Dec. 5. Trained naturalists will lead groups into the amazingly diverse heart of the preserve located on Sonoma Mountain.

Curiosity-driven exploration and stories uncover the unusual geology of the area, its violent origins and unique plants and animals. Hikers might see a Pacific Giant Salamander or a Pacific Treefrog, hear the wind rustling through the oaks and beautiful grasses, or smell the sweet fragrance of the hayfield tarweed - one of the most unique (and uniquely Californian) smells in the world.

Sign-up is not required—simply show up to meet one of guides at 10 a.m. on a Saturday from Oct. 24 to Dec. 5 with a lunch, water and walking boots. A donation of $3 per person is requested. For further information, contact Program Coordinator Suzanne DeCoursey, (707) 795-5069, or visit the Fairfield Osborn Preserve website.
