    • Mindful Meditation and Hike - Fremont

      Meditation

      8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m.

      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.

    • Drawbridge Van Excursion - Alviso

      Drawbridge

      June 9 (1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)
      July 14 (9:30 a.m.-noon)
      Aug 25 (9:30 a.m.-noon)

      An abandoned town in the San Francisco Bay? That’s right! Nestled on an island in the salt marshes of South San Francisco Bay, the town of Drawbridge once boomed. Was it a quiet, peaceful town full of nature lovers, or people scrabbling out a living? How long did it exist? Find out at this program, led by Ceal Craig. We will start with a slideshow, and then take a short van excursion to view Drawbridge across Coyote Creek. Program will be of most interest to adults interested in history or nature; children 13 and over with an adult are welcome. Space is very limited. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Go to https://drawbridgesummer18.eventbrite.com. Questions? Call Hope at 408-262-5513 ext.104.

      (Note: we do not visit the town itself. We go to the closest spot that one can legally view Drawbridge.)

    • Indicators That Fox Are in Your Area - Fremont

      Gray Fox

      2:00 p.m-3:30 p.m.

      Do you sometimes see paw prints in mud or scat (poop) on the trails and assume that a dog left it? It could be from something else. Come along with me and I will show you how to distinguish and identify the markings of a gray fox. Gain some insights into the fox’s nature and their behavior during the walk. By the time we are through, you will have a set of “tools” you can use to identify the presence of foxes in any area that you are in. Bring a hat, binoculars, and good walking shoes.  Register here. Led by Bill Leikam from Urban Wildlife Research Center.
