Introduction to Common Plants of the East Bay

  • Joaquin Miller Park - Sequoia Arena Gate 10013 Skyline Boulevard Oakland, CA, 94611 United States (map)

What’s that plant you saw on the trail? Learn to recognize some plants frequently found in the East Bay hills during a leisurely hike in Joaquin Miller Park. We will introduce you to some common plant communities and also discuss the impact of human activities on the landscape.

This will be a 1.4-mile hike of moderate difficulty. Dress in warm layers and wear sturdy hiking shoes—the trail is steep and muddy in a few sections. Bring water and lunch.

This is a free event, but donations are always welcome! Hand lenses will be available for you to borrow or purchase for a donation of $5-10.
