Join Joe Cernac in exploring Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve. This area is a unique ecological islet in the highlands of Santa Cruz Mountains, made possible by an abundance of erosion-resistant sandstone. This sandstone results in landscapes ranging from slopes with little soil, where beargrass makes its appearance, to deep loose sandy soils, where shrubs found in drier regions abound. Finally, at the area’s margins, redwoods and ferns make their presence.

Several species of manzanita will hold our interest. Bring lunch, snacks, and recommended 2+ liters of water. This hike is open to all comers, with no registration needed.

Directions: Parking is limited, so please carpool with others you know. The Preserve is located northeast of Davenport off Hwy 1. Exit Hwy 1 at Bonny Doon Rd. and head northeast. After 3.9 mi. turn right onto Martin Rd. (Bonny Doon Rd. becomes Pine Flat Rd. just before the intersection). In a mile the Preserve entrance will be on your left. Park near the fire station.
