2014 Spring Tours

The new year has begun and spring will be right around the corner. Beginning in April, the Pine Hill Preserve staff will offer four guided plant tours and a bird tour in different areas of the Preserve. The tours are free and open to the public. There is a limit of 25 participants per plant tour and 20 participants for the bird tour. Led by naturalists, each plant tour will focus primarily on the plants growing within the chaparral and oak woodland ecosystems of the Pine Hill Preserve but will also include information about wildlife and geology. All participants are encouraged to read information regarding Public Conduct on Preserve Land prior to visiting the Preserve.

With the exception of the bird tour, the following tours will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by 1:00 p.m. The bird tour will begin at 7:00 a.m. and conclude by noon.
