Albany Hill Field Trip
May 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am
Join Margot Cunningham on this 1.5 – 2 hour walk to learn about the great diversity of native plants growing on this small urban open space. We’ll start near the north side of the hill, cross Cerrito Creek, walk along the riparian/oak woodland edge, head back through the lower meadows, then ascend through the oak woodland to the crest, about a 340-foot climb. We’ll see more meadow and woodland plants on the crest and west side, then return to the start.
Meet at the south end of Santa Clara Avenue in El Cerrito, next to Cerrito Creek (3499 Santa Clara Avenue, El Cerrito in Google Maps). Public transit: 0.5 mile walk from EC Plaza BART, 0.2 mile walk from San Pablo Avenue/Carlson Boulevard stop on AC Transit 72 line.
