Join a naturalist for a winter adventure through Coyote Ridge Natural Area. This walk will be focused on geology and is most appropriate for older children and adults. Please dress for the weather and wear shoes that can get muddy. Bring snowshoes or shoe traction devices (microspikes, Yaktrax, etc.) if conditions are icy. 4 miles, moderate. Also bring some snacks or a light lunch to eat (distanced, of course) at the top of the hike. Location: Coyote Ridge Parking lot. *Please note: There is no restroom at the parking lot - the nearest is 1 mile down the trail.* Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks and physical distancing will be required by any participants and volunteers during this program. No more than 10 people will be present at the program. Program requirements are subject to change as CDC and County guidelines are updated. Additional instructions will be sent by e-mail to those registered prior to the program. Waivers will be required to be signed either online or in person upon arrival. If you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (cough, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste/smell, etc.) do not attend this program.
