Muir Woods Salmon Stroll

You are invited to join Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute for a hike at Muir Woods to see the threatened Coho Salmon, Central California Coast Evolutionary Significant Unit, and the Steelhead, Central California Coast Distinct Population Segment. Witness the semelparous (click here for the definition of semelparous) spawning behavior of the Coho Salmon and take action to help save these imperiled species.

Meet at Muir Woods National Monument, Mill Valley, CA, 94941.

Muir Woods is wonderful for many reasons, but the feature I  appreciate most is the 1.5 miles of paved/boardwalked trail accessible to visitors with limited mobility. We will be on this trail for most of the stroll.

It is going to be big group (yipeeee), let's do our best to keep our carbon footprint small by carpooling. The salmon really appreciate it. Please post below if you have space in your car or if you need a ride.

Keep in mind, everyone pays their own $7 entrance into the park. Entrance is free for visitors aged 15 yrs and under.

This event is rain or shine.

    December 12, 2013

    • Bozz S.

      December 13, 2013

    Hi everyone. I'm in Berkeley and wondering if anyone is coming from East Bay to carpool? If not, then I'm happy to get myself to San Francisco. Thanks!

    November 8, 2013

    • Regina Voorhies D.

      Got room for one more?

      Hi Regina! Daria hasn't responded yet so I definitely have room in my car for you. Would the del Norte stop work for you?

      December 12, 2013

  • Bozz S.

    do u still have room? i live in bernal.

    December 12, 2013

    • Jason M.

      All filled up as of now.

      December 12, 2013

  • Jason M.

    I have room for 3 passengers. I can pick-up in Bernal Heights/Mission area or at the Golden Gate as well.

    December 11, 2013

    • Jason M.

      Laura: I will be bringing a guest (more than likely) plus Eva and Janelle, so I don't think I will have more room. But if my guest cancels, you can have the spot.

      December 12, 2013

    • Janelle

      Jason there is a bus stop on the right for buses going to Marin just before you cross the bridge. Do you know it? That might be easiest pick up spot so you don't have to drive into the Golden Gate visitor mess. Just a thought.

      December 12, 2013

  • Scott V.

    Is anyone coming by MacArthur Bart or anywhere in west Oakland? If not I can take the Bart somewhere and meet up with a traveler that way as well.

    December 11, 2013

    • Amy

      Check with Jonny. It looks like he is picking up a group from el cerrito bart.

      December 11, 2013

  • Jason M.

    I will be driving from Bernal Heights (near St. Mary's Park).

    1 · December 10, 2013

    • Jason M.

      Eva. Yes, that is no problem. I have extra room. I will be leaving from the area around Mission St. and Alemany Blvd. You are welcome to ride along.

      December 10, 2013

    • Janelle

      Any chance I could get a pick up at the bridge?

      December 11, 2013

  • eva

    I would like a ride from San Francisco if anyone has room. I can get myself close to 19th Avenue/One/Park Presidio if that's more convenient. Thanks!

    December 9, 2013

  • Michael

    How great. I can take 2 or 3 people from around 19th & Holloway, or reasonably along the way from there.

    March 15, 2013

    • Janelle

      I would like the last seat if possible let me know if I should look around more

      December 9, 2013

    • eva

      If any one drops out, I'd like a ride please, and I can get myself via muni towards where you are, thanks!

      December 9, 2013

  • Regina Voorhies D.

    I would love a ride from someone passing through Oakland.

    December 8, 2013

  • Regina Voorhies D.

    I'd love to meet at a BART station.

    November 25, 2013

  • Bozz S.

    i can either offer a ride (i have room for 3) or ride with someone else if they have room. i live in bernal/mission area.

    November 18, 2013

  • Lauren R.

    Is anyone driving from a part of the city slightly more to the east? Would also love a ride. I'm in lower nob hill but I can meet somewhere else.

    November 5, 2013

  • Larry P.

    I live near Van Ness and Market but I'm glad to take Muni to wherever we can connect.

    November 5, 2013

  • Larry P.

    November 4, 2013

    • Michael
