FOLFAN Guided Nature Hikes - One down and two coming up!
On Saturday, March 25, Crystal Tobias led a guided nature hike at Lake Natoma with more than 20 participants! A lot of FOLFAN members and friends came out to explore the flora and fauna of our beautiful Lake Natoma, including the emerging wildflowers and birds that reside in our park. The weather was great, and the hike was enjoyed by all!
Our next two guided nature hikes include:
Peggy Dalton's "Mississippi Bar" guided hike, on the North side of Lake Natoma, on Saturday, May 6 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This is an easy 3-mile hike that will include wetlands, wildflowers and wildlife, and an overview of the area's history. View/download event flyer here.
Linda McDonald's "Rattlesnake Bar to Avery Pond" guided hike on Sunday, May 21 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This is an easy 4-mile hike along the Pioneer Express Trail, stopping to explore the history of Native Americans, the Gold Rush, and early agricultural settlements. See what remains of the North Fork Ditch (flume) and learn about Ira Avery's settling pond (aka Avery Pond), one of the hidden gems of the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area.

If you're interested in either/both of these hikes, please print a copy of the event flyer(s). The flyer will explain how to RSVP for each hike. Our last hike filled up, so be sure not to wait until it's too late to RSVP!
