Santa Ysabel East 200th Anniversary Hike and Harvest Celebration
Help us honor the 200th anniversary of the Santa Ysabel Mission. Hike a historic section of trail that Padre Sanchez traveled in 1821 and chronicled in his diary. This 6.5-mile hike will follow the Santa Ysabel Creek downhill to the Mission, where we will pass by a White Alder forest and stop to pick the last few remaining blackberries along the trail. After the hike, you can enjoy the Harvest Celebration, where park staff will have a nature touch table and a “Make your own hiking stick” station set up. Meet at the Santa Ysabel Mission 1.5 miles north of Santa Ysabel, where we will carpool to the Farmer Staging Area at Santa Ysabel East Preserve. Please consider carpooling with people from your area -- we can all do our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the county meet its Climate Action Plan goals. http://www.sandiegocounty.gov/pds/advance/climateactionplan.html
