Come “rock on” with us Saturday, April 13 at 9:00am for a special hike focusing on the GEOLOGY of the foothills. At our Big Hill Preserves you’ll see the gently flowing Raccoon Creek, spectacular panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada foothills and Sacramento Valley and ROCKS – there are amazing and abundant rock formations! This hike has become one of our most popular and fills up fast.
