Join Dee and Ken Himes for an advanced spring botanical hike at Butano State Park through iconic redwood forests, wetlands and ridge tops. We will hike along trails that have been reopened after the 2020 CZU Lightning Complex Fire.

We will see understory wildflowers such as redwood sorrel (Oxalis oregana), red-flowering currant (Ribes sanguineum) and varied-leaved collomia (Collomia heterophylla). We will also be walking through some post-burn landscapes and observe the fire’s effects on the local plant ecology.

The hiking distance will be about 5 miles round trip on uneven, steep, and potentially muddy dirt trails. Bring sun protection, water, snacks, lunch and hiking poles if you like them. A hand lens and binoculars will come in handy. Dress in layers and wear sturdy hiking shoes. Heavy rain cancels.
