DATE:                  Wednesday, June 26, 2024  

TIME:                   8:00am to 10:00am

Trip is limited to 20 participants - Signups will be taken for 24 hours. Participants will be randomly selected. The remainder will be put on standby status in case of cancellations. Only registered people may attend.

Description: After the winter rains and floods, the beaver dams on the Salinas River in Atascadero were all washed away.  They have just begun rebuilding their dams and recreating their habitat. Come join us as we explore this new dam and beaver complex and see what changes have happened since our last visit.

The walk is a half-mile walk out to the ponds on sandy, rocky trails. It is helpful to wear water shoes or tall boots since we typically walk into the water up to our shins, or old sneakers you won't mind walking with into the water.

Restrooms are not available. There is no water or restroom facilities at the site, Home Depot and Starbucks are the closest facilities.

ADA Accessible: No

Experience Level: All Levels Welcome
