Open Trail Day

This is a great time to see our riparian forests with trees over 300 years old, oak woodlands, and seasonal wetlands, all in their spring beauty.  During this time of year, Swainson’s hawks are seen soaring in the sky, broods of ducklings and goslings are readily spotted in the wetlands.
