Living with Fire: Fire Ecology Hike 

Saturday, February 11th 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM 

Sycamore Grove Park, Wetmore Road Entrance (1051 Wetmore Road) 

Join Naturalist Dora and Open Space Volunteers on a hike in the hills to see the impact and recovery of the park from the 2020 lightning-strike fires.  We’ll visit the site of our volunteer led “Burned Oak Project” studying the effects of the wildfire on our native and non-native plants.  Come learn about how native wildlife has adapted to live with fire, the connection between more extreme fires, droughts, and climate change in California, and what role open spaces play in the fight against climate change. Approximately 5-mile hike with slight elevation gain at a leisurely pace. Register online!
