Woodland Canyon Creek Guided Hike
Explore Mount Sutro's Woodland Canyon and the creek that could flow here!
Time & Location
May 28, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Edgewood Trailhead, 300 Edgewood Ave, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA
About the event
Mount Sutro regulars may know that Woodland Canyon is the home of a seasonal creek. You can hear the water flowing under the mess of invasive Himalayan blackberry and cape ivy, but catching a glimpse of this water is almost impossible due to the overgrowth, and layers of dead and decomposing plant debris on top of it.
On May 28th from 10:00am - 11:30am, Sutro Stewards executive director, Ildiko Polony, will lead a hike through the canyon to illustrate the history of the watershed, point out where water (sometimes) does flow, and paint a picture of what the creek could look like with some concerted restoration. Along the way, you'll learn about plants of the area, their ethnobotanical uses, and why habitat restoration (including river and creek ecosystems) is a major tool in the mitigation of climate change.
Meet us at the Edgewood Trailhead, located at approximately 300 Edgewood Avenue. Street parking is limited.
We suggest a minimum donation of $20 for the walk. This is not a top or bottom limit; please give what you can to support our educational efforts and our work to improve the Mount Sutro Open Space through trail building and maintenance, plant propagation, and habitat restoration!
**Hikes may be canceled for rain or high winds. Hikes will be canceled if there are not at least 3 RSVPs 2 hours prior to the event. Please check your email for updates.**
