    Join us for a plant ID walk on the new trail at Three Bridges Oak Preserve. This trail starts in blue oak woodland, ascends into chaparral, and ends in stands of madrone and views towards the east. It is 4 miles up and back, ascending 800 ft. The ascent is gradual, along a winding trail towards the top of the ridge.

    Come and learn the easy to identify species. Pick out plants that attract you. Bring native plant samples with you to be identified.

There are 4 signs helping to guide you along these streets to the parking lot.

    Make sure to bring water and snacks. Sturdy shoes, sunscreen, hats, and layered clothing are recommended. No RSVP needed and no dogs please. Also, bring paper and pencil to take notes, and a camera for a photo record. If you would like a preprinted copy of the plant list for this walk, let the hike leader know 24 hours in advance.
