PEREGRINE WANDER - Reservations Required

Description: Join us on a nature hike up Pine Canyon to view Castle Rock, nesting site of the world's fastest bird, the Peregrine Falcon. Once on the brink of extinction, Peregrines were reintroduced to the Castle Rock area a few decades ago. Now, a pair is getting ready to nest in the dramatic sandstone pinnacles. Naturalist Staci Hobbet will describe the falcon's natural history, this year’s nesting site, the many challenges the "wanderers" still face, and what is being done locally to assist them. Our hike up the canyon follows a historic stagecoach road and passes the enigmatic "China Wall" of Mount Diablo.
