Sunday, February 14, 2010, 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.: As the sun sets below the Dipsea Ridge and Muir Woods transitions from day to night, come see and hear the subtle changes of an ancient redwood forest. Travel slowly through the Woods with Ranger Lou Sian on this easy walk in search of the rich sounds of nature that are fast becoming endangered in this busy metropolitan area. After hours when no one is around, hear the water in the creek, the gentle drops of redwood seeds on tanoak leaves, the wind soughing through the canopies of these very tall and ancient redwoods, and learn how protecting nesting northern spotted owl led to the National Park Service’s efforts to preserve the natural soundscape of Muir Woods.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Feb 10th, 2010 10:27 PM
