Join LandPaths for an exploratory hike guided by LandPaths' Executive Director Craig Anderson with Fire Ecology and other experts on LandPaths-owned Dawn Redwoods Preserve.  This property, donated to LandPaths in 2016, was burned in the path of the Tubbs Fire.  Some portions of the property received a 'ground fire' during the early hours of the conflagration, and yet farther up the ridge we had near incineration.  The view from the top of the ridge is quite stunning, as you look down on Foothills, Fountain Grove and out towards the sea. This outing will include a three mile hike with significant elevation gain.  All ages welcome, however this will be a scientific, fire-ecology walk not necessarily geared towards children.
