Point Reyes Hike and Community Service Project!

Come join the YCSF as we participate in a weed watching hike to beautiful Tomales Bay at Point Reyes!

On Saturday, September 12th, Point Reyes National Seashore and the Yale Club of SF will be holding a Weed Watchers volunteer program.  It will begin at 10AM at the Red Barn, at 1 Bear Valley Rd, in Point Reyes Station, and will last until about 3pm.
 
We'll start off the day with a presentation about the Early Detection program for invasive plant management, and then we'll go through identification of some key weeds. Afterwards, we'll drive out to Laird's Landing, for a picnic (please bring your own lunch!) and a weed watching hike that ends at the beautiful Tomales Bay. 
 
It's a good event for anyone interested in vegetation who likes hiking.  We usually go at a pretty leisurely pace (.5 miles / hour ) since we stop and look at plants frequently. We don't usually have people under 13 on our hikes, but this is not a steadfast rule.  Point Reyes weather is usually significantly colder than most other parts of the Bay Area, so bring an extra layer.
 
Directions: From Rt. 101 N, take the Sir Francis Drake Blvd. (San Anselmo) exit, and follow Sir Francis Drake, through San Anselmo, Fairfax and Samuel P. Taylor State park for 20.4 miles.  At a stoplight in Olema, turn right, and take the first left onto Bear Valley Road.  After about a quarter mile is a big red barn on the left, and that's where we'll hold our training.  We can carpool out to our hike location.
