Explore Mount Diablo with new eyes on this natural and cultural history walk with local wildlife biologist and naturalist Doc Hale, as he interprets the fire ecology of the recent Clayton Burn, wildlife, geology, wildflowers, and the material culture of the Native Americans, their useful, edible, and medicinal plants. We will visit bedrock milling stations, as well as a village site and pictograph site.

Hiking level is easy. Bring lunch and liquids. We will carpool from the garden at 8:30am or meet at 9:30am at the John Muir Picnic Area just below the summit of Mount Diablo.

Register here.

Cost: $10/individual; $20/family tax-deductible donation to Lafayette Community Garden to support our education programs.*

*A park entrance fee applies at both the north and south entrances, and is separate from the cost of the class.
