Calabazas Creek hike



The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and the Sonoma Ecology Center will be leading a hike at the Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve on Sunday, March 6, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Participants will experience the beginning of spring in the hills while hike leaders Mark Newhouser and Becca Lawton point out emerging wildflowers and other signs that the seasons are changing.

The Calabazas Creek Open Space Preserve was protected by the District in October 2004 for recreation and preservation of its natural resources, including the stretch of Calabazas Creek that cascades down the canyon. The property, which encompasses 1,290 acres and overlooks the Valley of the Moon, will eventually be turned over to the State as an addition to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. It is one of the most exquisite natural sites in Sonoma Valley, containing a variety of habitats and breath-taking vistas.

This is an intermediate to advanced level hike, and will happen rain or shine. There is no charge for this outing, as it is made possible by the voters of Sonoma County who funded the District’s work with a quarter cent sales tax. Reservations are required by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 4. For more information, contact Elly Seelye at 996-0712, ext. 124, or email her at elly@sonomaecologycenter.org.
