Spring is in bloom at Wildflower Fest
Submitted By Ashley Adams
It's time to celebrate the season of the birds, bees, flowers, and trees! Join us for hikes, crafts, music, and nature activities at the ÒSpring Wildflower FestivalÓ Sunday, April 8 at Sunol Regional Wilderness. Hikes are geared for different ages, distances, and topics. There is something for everyone. Pack a picnic lunch, put on your hiking boots and join us for a glorious day filled with flowers in this very special wilderness!
This year, guided naturalist-led hikes will be offered every 15 minutes leaving from the festival meadow. Hikes are either one-hour easy strolls to see wildflowers or a three-hour three-mile hike into the hills of Sunol to view flowers in a variety of habitats.
All activities offered will be celebrating spring. From making your own seed ball or butterfly mask to take home or dissecting a flower, weÕll have activities for all ages and abilities.
Information and activities will be available from a variety of different agencies including the California Native Plant Society, Zone 7 Water District, East Bay Regional Park District Botanic Garden and more! There will be some items available for sale.
We are pleased to celebrate spring this year with the sounds of strings in the morning with Extended Roots and rockinÕ out to mow-town hits from Steady Eddy and the Shakers in the afternoon.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch as there is no food vendor at this event. There is no cell service in the park. Parking may be limited; please consider the environment and carpool. Off-site parking with shuttle bus service will be offered.
