Docent Walks

Friends of the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve sponsors monthly guided walks focusing on the beauty and natural diversity of the Ranch. Forest Loop and Bluff trail walks, led by experienced docents, feature an opportunity to view and understand the rich and complex ecosystems of plants and animals that inhabit the Ranch. In addition to the Forest Loop and Bluff Trail walks, docents offer special interest walks that follow the seasonal and migratory changes that occur on the Ranch. Topics for the special interest walks include geology, birds, butterflies, wildflowers and native cultures.
