Join Cosumnes River Preserve docents on a guided hike along the River Walk Trail! This hike will take you back to the days when the Plains Miwok once inhabited the Cosumnes River’s surrounding landscape.
You’ll learn about the plants and animals they interacted with and the unique ways in which they utilized the land as a part of their everyday lives.
The route will cover approximately 3.5 miles, but participants that do not wish to walk that far may turn around at any time. This is a great family activity for all ages! This is an outdoor setting in nature, so please dress accordingly with sturdy shoes and layers. There is not potable water, so please bring all the water you’ll need for the hike. Binoculars encouraged!
COVID-19 Precautions: We have limited the number of participants to ensure guests can social distance. Bringing a facemask is encouraged in the event the group cannot social distance on areas of the trail.
Meet at 9:00 am on the Visitor Center deck.
Registration through EventBrite is required as space is limited.
Join experienced naturalists for a leisurely paddle up the Cosumnes River and its peaceful sloughs. We’ll likely see forest birds, raptors, egrets, herons, cormorants, and maybe deer, a beaver and/or an otter. We’ll talk about the flora and fauna found in this riparian corridor, and about the first people to live here, the Plains Miwoks.
Bring your own boat (canoe, kayak, SUP), paddle, and PFD.
We will meet at the Cosumnes River Preserve Visitor Center Parking lot.
Please be there and have your boat unloaded and ready to put in by 8:00 a.m. at the latest, because we will depart from the parking lot at 8:00. We’ll be back at the parking lot around noon.
COVID PRECAUTIONS: Please social distance by maintaining 6 ft. from other participants. Face masks required if not able to maintain social distancing.
