Enjoy the Beauty of Bodega Head!

August 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

In August, we will escape the heat and head to the  majestic coastal bluffs of Bodega Head! This is a great place to learn about the local geology that underlies our region. It is also a great place to practice the rock drawing skills that we learned in June at Shorttail Gulch. There are some impressive old cypress trees where we will practice several brush stroke techniques. If you have one make sure to bring one of those Pentel ink  brush pens. The whole time we will keep our eyes open for bird activity and whales which are both observed from this location.

There will be a minimum amount of hiking on unpaved but mostly flat trails. Bring everything you need to be comfortable and protected from sun and wind. A wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, and lots of water are essential. A small folding stool could also be useful. Binoculars will be useful as will bulldog clips for keeping your journal pages from fluttering if it is windy.

We will have our potluck near the parking lot so your food item does not need to be portable. There is a bathroom but no water.

We are meeting at 9am instead of 10 because we are on our summer schedule.

$20 recommended donation

The last stretch of the drive is curvy but just keep following Westshore Road and you will reach a large parking lot.
