Discover Sonoma Mountain!

May 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

In the month of May, the North Coast Nature Journal club will be heading into the beautiful wooded hills east of Santa Rosa with our sketchbooks and watercolors as well as our observation skills and our learning intentions. This site is incredibly gorgeous this time of year, with verdant oaks,  lofty redwoods, dramatic creekbeds and waterfalls, and some incredible views of Sonoma County. We will go over several observation techniques that are useful with these particular subjects and do some landscapes.

We will be hiking short distances up and down hill on this trip with some uneven ground and rocky terrain. Be prepared for sun and warm conditions. A small folding stool could be useful for the longer landscape drawing. This location has a bathroom and seven dollar parking unless you are a member of the Sonoma County Regional Parks. Bring a potluck item that is not too hard to carry onto the trail because we will not want to go back to the parking lot for lunch.

$20 recommended donation
