Spectacular views of Drakes Bay, Estero and Cliffs make any hike along the Estero Trail a special experience. However, many who enjoy the gorgeous scenery and rich birdlife along this varied trek miss the numerous clues to the area's fascinating human history. This class offers a unique opportunity to hike the trail with a local history writer to explore some of Drakes Estero's most interesting people stories, from vibrant Coast Miwok communities and shipwrecked European explorers, to 19th Century butter ranches and 20th Century bootleggers. Along the way we'll also have many opportunities to view the diversity of marine and avian wildlife that make the estuary so crucial. A midday low tide increases our chances of seeing bat rays and leopard sharks just beneath the surface, as well as sea stars and other tide pool life along the shoreline. Open to youth (age 10-17) with attending adult.
