Trail to Bay Hike: Church Canyon

SIGN UP

Thanks for your interest in joining us for our Trail to Bay Challenge hike at Church Canyon on June 12, 2022. A patch of nature located within the confines of a neighborhood, Church Canyon is a great example of how visiting nature can be as easy as walking into our own backyards. With water and geologic features, we’ll discuss the history of the canyon and how we know this based on what we’re seeing. Depending on the time of year, we might even get a chance to witness the chalk dudleya sprouting its protective blossoms.
