The only way to reach the far end of the bay is down the Alviso Slough. We will paddle out to the open waters of the South Bay and the mudflats of the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge and then ride the tide home. This is a great trip for bird watchers and people interested in the wild corners of our bay lands. WILDFLOWERS OF FORT ORD.

We will hike for about 5 miles and discuss the history, ecology and future of this large open space. SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS EARTH DAY HIKE . Celebrate spring and nature on this special day as we hike along the Skyline trail in upper Sanborn County Park. Vistas of the South Bay, wildflowers and quiet trails await us on this special day. We will walk about 6 miles of rolling terrain with some uphill on well-maintained trails. BROOKS ISLAND KAYAK. This is a beautiful kayak trip in the northern SF Bay to view a ‘secret spot’ - the scenic Brooks Island. We will paddle along the shoreline, looking at the large colony of nesting gulls and terns and then pull out on the island to eat lunch. After lunch we can beach comb along the deserted dunes looking for fossils, shells and interesting flotsam.
