Full Moon Hike

September 25, 2020

Bring a flashlight and your sense of wonder as you explore the park after dark. This hike has two routes and heads up either to Bald Mountain or to the viewpoint on the Vista Trail, where we will see the moon rise over the Mayacamas and the sun set over Sonoma Valley.
The Bald Mountain route starts at 4:30PM and meets at the main parking lot. It is strenuous and will cover 6.5 miles with 1500 plus of vertical with some steep sections.
The Vista Trail route is a moderate-to-strenuous 4-mile hike with 700ft of elevation. It begins at 4:45PM from the White Barn.
Be at the meeting location at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the hike for a prompt departure. Bring your mask, water, snacks, and extra layers for the evening. Parking fees and social distancing apply.

Fantasmas de Sugarloaf/ Ghosts of Sugarloaf


¡Acompáñenos en una caminata única en Sugarloaf y aprenda más sobre la historia del parque! Esta caminata de dos millas incluirá historias fascinantes sobre algunos individuos que fallecieron en el parque – desde un millonario desesperado con un pasado interesante a un colonizador que hizo un gran “boom.” La caminata seguirá los senderos Meadow y Hillside e incluye 76 metros de ascenso vertical. Pararemos en el viejo campamento de los Boy Scouts para disfrutar del atardecer, y dependiendo de condiciones tal vez haya una fogata. Se sugiere que traigan una linterna ya que la caminata terminará en la oscuridad o el crepúsculo. Nos reuniremos en el área del granero blanco.
Este evento es gratuito pero requiere registración con alma@sonomaecologycenter.org
El estacionamiento es $10 por vehículo.  Evento en español con un guía bilingüe.

 

3-Year Anniversary Fire Recovery Walk at Sugarloaf

September 24, 2020

We’ll check in on how Sugarloaf’s diverse habitats have fared since the October 2017 wildfires, almost exactly three years ago.  How have these wild places responded? What are the short, medium and long-term effects of fire on our local ecosystems? What have we learned about how to live with fire, three years later? Led by Certified California Naturalist Carolyn Greene, we will walk 2-3 miles beginning at the White Barn parking lot.
Please wear sun protection, sturdy footwear and bring water, snack and your mask. Registration is a donation of $5 or more and limited to 12 participants. Parking fees and soclal distancing apply.
