Revel in this early summer walk along the beautiful Bear Valley Trail. This is the perfect place to appreciate the plants, animals, and remarkable natural landscape of Point Reyes. We will explore the cooling glades of the riparian community, warm open meadows and chaparral, and a Douglas fir forest that towers overhead. As we make our way to Divide Meadow, we will learn about the special qualities of these habitats and how they support a diverse array of plants and animals. At this time of year, we will keep a sharp eye out for resident birds that will be feeding their young, flowers of the season, spiders and the numerous insects that will be active including butterflies and dragonflies. We'll seek out fungi, which play a leading role in the health of plant communities. The diversity of Bear Valley's habitats is influenced by geologic events. We will get up close and personal with the San Andreas Fault, which separates the Point Reyes Peninsula from the rest of the North American continent, and see how geological activity here helps to shape the lovely landscapes of Point Reyes. Open to youth (age 7-17) with attending adult.
