Introduction to the Outdoors: Using Taxonomy in Nature

Have you ever wanted to know the name of a plant or animal on a hike? Come join us on a slow paced hike in beautiful Bommer Canyon as an IRC volunteer will teach you how to use materials such as a dichotomous key to help ID a plant or animal. This is an introductory hike which will consist of moderate interpretation and will include tips on getting into hiking outdoors. We will be hiking 2-1/2 miles with 600 feet elevation out and back with an opportunity to hike further on your own at our turn around point.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-2 activity on the land. After the hike is over, please feel free to explore the trails on your own since this hike is occurring during Wilderness Access Day.

This program occurs concurrently with the monthly Wilderness Access Day. The trails will be available for self-guided access from 8am until 2pm.
