Honoring an ancient maple


Sugarloaf State Park

Saturday October 20th 2018 - 10:00am to

Oct. 20 – 10 a.m.

Pay homage to one of Sonoma County’s most impressive trees, as it enters its final stages of life. This event starts with a guided, easy, one-mile walk along the Meadow Trail to the Heritage Maple at Sonoma Creek. Along the way, park naturalists will discuss the various ways plants are recovering from last year’s fires. Then, gather by the Heritage Maple. This mighty tree, thought to have been one of the areas largest big leaf maples during its prime, has reached its twilight years, and the fires wrought additional damage. This tree holds a special place in the heart of many area residents. Two of them, Breck Parkman, retired state park archeologist and longtime Sugarloaf resident, and valley resident and poet, Michael Sheffield, will tell tales of the tree and the park during its life. After the ceremony, hike back to the group camp for light brunch and refreshments. By reservation only, proceeds support Team Sugarloaf’s operation and maintenance of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. Tickets are $35 for adults, $10 for kids age 10-17.
