      Start your day with an easy 0.75 mile walk soaking in the natural beauty of the wildlife refuge followed by 10-15 minutes of guided, seated meditation. By the end of the hour, you’ll feel refreshed and ready to start your weekend. If you would like to sit on a cushion, please bring it. I will have a limited number of yoga blocks to sit on.

    • Plants for Beginners - Alviso

      California Buckwheat

      10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

      They’re in cracks in the sidewalk and they make up entire forests-plants are everywhere! Did you know that you can learn a lot about plants with some basic knowledge? We’ll take a walk around the upland garden at a botanist’s pace (slooowly) using the native plants to learn easy-to-remember plant terminology. Wear weather appropriate clothing for being outdoors, bring a water bottle, and a small sketchbook if drawing helps you remember. Be prepared to develop the vocabulary you need to be plant literate. Good for all ages, adults encouraged! Reservations recommended. Go to the Eventbrite site to register. Questions? Call 408-262-5513 ext. 104.
