New Year’s Day Hike @ Anderson Marsh
January 1 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Start the New Year off right with a leisurely walk at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park!
Join your friends as part of nation-wide First Day Hike program. Parks from all 50 states have joined together to encourage their communities to get outdoors and enjoy nature on New Year’s Day.
We are blessed with beautiful weather this year for the walk. This family-friendly event begins on Monday, January 1st at 12:00 noon at the Park, located off Hwy 53, between Lower Lake and Clearlake. Children of all ages are welcome. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and a hat. Bring water, snacks, and binoculars if you have them.
Led by Park docents, the walk will loop through portions of the Cache Creek, Marsh and Ridge Trails. Hikers will experience grasslands, oak woodlands, willow and cottonwood riparian habitats and a large vernal pool near the end of the hike. Hikers may encounter a variety of migrating and resident birds and other wildlife.
The hike should take between 2 and 2½ hrs. Participants are welcome to walk part way and make an early return at their own pace. Because this area is a Natural Preserve, we regret that no dogs can be brought on this walk.
Bring your family and join us for a hike in the Park on the first day of 2018!
