Organizer/AuthorWild Equity Institute
(Note: this is a reschedule of the March 5 hike, which was cancelled due to inclement weather)

Join the Wild Equity Institute on a beautiful coastal hike as we explore the history and ecology of the rare Franciscan Manzanita. We'll also discuss what the National Park Service and other conservationists are doing to protect this magnificent species. We’ll be joined by Michael Vasey and Tom Parker, co-authors of the Field Guide to Manzanitas.

Meet us at Baker Beach North Parking Lot off of Battery Chamberlin Road. From there, we will hike north along the Pacific bluffs and through the manzanita’s critical habitat. Once we reach the Golden Gate Bridge, we’ll pour some Manzanita drinks (apple juice and champagne) and make a toast to the survival of this wonderful species! In the spirit of resource conservation, please bring a reusable cup if you wish to participate! We’ll also have books, t-shirt, and water bottles for sale.

Hope to see you there!
