The local CNPS chapter has a tradition of welcoming
the New Year with a walk and picnic at Año Nuevo State
Park on the rugged and beautiful San Mateo County coast.
The park is located south of Pescadero on Highway 1,
just north of the Santa Cruz County line.
Meet in the parking lot ($10 day use fee) at 10am.
Latecomers will find us on the trail in the coastal prairie.
We’ll enjoy sea cliff vegetation, raptors, songbirds and
maybe marine mammals.
Pack a lunch: the tide will be at
its lowest at 11:04am. We will picnic on the beach in the
area in which seal tour reservations are not required.
This is a day to have fun at the beach with fellow Chapter
members, so the ending time and depth of botanical
discussion may be extended depending on participants.
Bring binoculars and layers for variable conditions
including wind, sun and fog.
Heavy rain cancels. For more information contact Carolyn
Dorsch at [masked], or[masked] (eves).
